Answer

Patients with urticarial lesions may be treated with antihistamines, including both sedating and less-sedating agents. However, these patients may fail to respond to antihistamines, and often a trial of colchicines or dapsone may be needed. In some cases, a combination of these agents is needed to control the disease manifestations. Some patients respond to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents.
