Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria (CIU)

CIU is a skin condition involving hives (urticaria) that last 6 weeks or longer (chronic) and have no known cause (idiopathic). About 70% of people with chronic hives do not know the cause. Hives are a skin reaction causing red or white itchy welts that vary in size and appear and fade repeatedly as the reaction runs its course.
