Summary

This app was developed by a global patient group for allergic conditions, including urticaria. 

The app helps people with urticaria (hives) to map and record their symptoms to identify and avoid possible triggers.

The app offers information on a range of topics including:

  • What urticaria is
  • The different types of urticaria
  • Treatment options available
  • Action patients can take
  • Useful links.

The app also enables people to:

  • Complete a symptoms check to see if they could have urticaria
  • Track symptoms, triggers and degree of sensitivity in a diary
  • Carry out a control test
  • Track `activity scores’ for urticaria and angio-oedema.

Reviews

Reviewer: Global patient group which developed the app: “Global allergy and asthma patient platform” – (GAAPP)
Review:

“The severity of Urticaria can vary. The spectrum ranges from a short and mild discomfort up to years of constant torture. 

Also, the triggers for Urticaria are different from patient to patient. In some cases the trigger can be identified and easily avoided, in other cases it is never found.

The most important step is to identify the triggers and determine the individual sensitivity threshold. To do that it is essential to run a diary that helps to document the course of the disease. 

This app will help those affected with it. Fewer relapses or a decrease in the severity of relapses, is already a success.”
