App to help people to identify and avoid triggers for urticaria (hives).
“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.
