Autoimmune Disorders and Urticaria

Autoimmunity is thought to be one of the most frequent causes of chronic urticaria. In about half of patients with chronic idiopathic hives, the explanation is that body's immune system is, in a sense, overactive. The urticaria is "autoimmune". The immune system is attacking the normal tissues of the body and causing hives as a result.
