What do you know? It's a quick quiz!


The correct answer is all of them. CIU is unpredictable and that’s one of the reasons living with it is so challenging.

Urticaria trigger list


If your doctor is still trying to determine what kind of urticaria you have (idiopathic or not), it may be helpful for you to keep a list of anything that you feel may have triggered your hives; e.g., certain foods or food additives, alcohol, medications, or situations such as temperature extremes, tight clothing or emotional stress.

Trigger list

CIU diary


Every day, write down your activities, when and where (on your body) hives occur, and what you ate that day.

Track your CIU symptoms
and treatments


Try keeping a daily record of symptoms and how you treated them to give yourself and your doctor a clear record of how CIU is affecting you on a daily basis.
