Urticaria pigmentosa is a disease that produces skin lesions and intense itching. If the lesions are rubbed, hives may form on the site.
Urticaria pigmentosa is one of several forms of mastocytosis, which is caused by excessive numbers of inflammatory cells (mast cells) in the skin.
The symptoms are appearance of brownish lesions on skin, welt or hive formation when lesions are rubbed or scratched, blister formation over lesion when it is rubbed and facial flushing.
Antihistamines may relieve some of the histamine-induced symptoms such as itching and flushing.
With more severe and unusual forms of urticaria pigmentosa, systemic symptoms should be controlled with other medications.
Hope you find this information useful.
