Have you ever experienced biduran? Of course it feels very itchy, doesn't it? Hives known as urticaria in medical terms are skin problems that can develop quickly. The body parts that are often affected are the face, body, arms, or legs.
Many people underestimate this condition. In fact, experts suspect that biduran can arise due to other health conditions that need to be watched out. One of them is an autoimmune disease. What's the connection, huh? Check out the following full review
Actually what is biduran?
Based on the length of time it appears, biduran or urticaria is divided into two, namely acute and chronic. Acute urticaria occurs with less than six months. While chronic urticaria has been experienced for more than six months or has recurred many times. The following are triggers of chronic urticaria:
- In some cases, chronic urticaria is part of a food allergy . For example nuts, fish, wheat, eggs, or milk and derivative products.
- In other cases, allergic dust, mites, or flower pollen can also contribute to the occurrence of urticaria.
- In some people, insect bites can also trigger urticaria.
Unfortunately, until now the skin conditions that have often attacked many people are not known exactly why. In addition to allergies in general, experts believe that biduran can be caused by an autoimmune disease.
Autoimmune diseases occur when the immune system (immune system) mistakenly attacks healthy cells in the body itself. Your immune system even thinks that your cell is a dangerous foreign organism.
How can biduran be associated with autoimmune diseases?
One of the most common autoimmune diseases associated with cases of chronic urticaria is thyroid disease. Thyroid disease itself is a disorder of the thyroid gland which causes hormonal imbalance.
In the study, it was found that around 45 to 55 percent of people with chronic urticaria do have autoimmune problems. People who have autoimmune diseases also tend to experience urticaria which is far more severe than people in general. Apart from thyroid disease, there are several other types of autoimmune diseases that are indicated by symptoms of urticaria. For example rheumatism, type 1 diabetes, lupus, Celiac disease, and vitiligo.
Hives or urticaria itself is a reaction that occurs when the body attacks special antibodies that are indeed produced by the immune system. So, your immune system turns to attack itself. That's why there is a very close connection between urticaria and various types of autoimmune diseases.
However, experts have not fully understood why a person's immune system can attack themselves and cause hives.
We recommend that you see a doctor if you experience chronic urticaria
Because chronic urticaria is very closely related to autoimmune diseases, it's a good idea to see your doctor immediately if you experience a biduran that doesn't heal or recurs frequently. Don't underestimate or expect one day the condition will disappear by itself.
The sooner you detect an autoimmune problem, the symptoms you experience can also be treated more quickly before getting worse.
