Understanding of Urticaria and treatment options

In Ayurveda, a condition termed Sheetapitta is explained. It bears similar symptoms of Urticaria. While there isn’t any specific and satisfactory cure for urticaria in contemporary science, good news is it can be managed effectively via the Ayurveda system of medicine.


It is true that urticaria isn’t a life threatening condition; however, it affects one’s quality of life seriously. A few individuals tend to suffer from this condition for even years together. Besides, incidences of relapse are found frequently. Many resort to western medicine that prescribes antihistamines and corticosteroids as mentioned earlier. Well, these drugs reduce the body’s immunity; hence, Ayurveda definitely has an edge in offering a comprehensive solution to urticaria.


Sheetapitta consists of two words in which sheeta means cold & pitta means warmth. Therefore, it is a condition that is caused owing to dominance of ‘cold’ (which exists in kapha and vata dosha) over ‘hot’ (existing in pitta dosha).


Causative factors of Urticaria:

  1. Excess intake of salty and pungent food
  2. Eating large amounts of sour gruels
  3. Excessive intake of mustard
  4. Exposure to cold wind
  5. Contact of cold substances
  6. Day sleep
  7. Improper emesis
  8. Altered features in rainy and winter season
  9. Insect bite
  10. Contact of poisonous insects / bugs

Origin of the disease

Because of the above-said factors, most importantly, due to exposures to cold breeze, kapha and vata doshas get aggravated and consequently they mix up with pitta dosha. In addition, they spread to all parts of the body and accumulate in the body’s external surface (beneath the skin), eventually producing reddish rashes characterized by intense itching & pricking sensation. Thus, sheetapitta, a condition resembling Urticarial rashes tends to be manifested.

  1. Body purificatory therapy
  2. Oral medications
  3. Avoidance of causative factors
