Urticaria is a frequent disease and exist in an acute or chronic form. The pathophysiology, focused on mast cells and histamine among other mediators, is an active research field but still poorly understood. The medical care focus on the avoidance of triggers and aggravating factors. The recommended drug therapy has not changed. The acknowledgment of chronic urticaria as a chronic disease is essential according to the last international recommendations. Acknowledging the disease morbidity and consequences, in a private, social or professional environment, allows better medical care for patients. The latter should get support on the long term, thanks to multiple diagnostic and therapeutic guidance tools.
