Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria – A patient perspective
Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria (CSU) is a common and distressing skin condition that causes red, raised, itchy and sometimes painful hives or wheals (raised rash or patches) on the skin with no known obvious trigger.
To be considered chronic, the wheals (urticaria) must be present daily for at least six weeks and is referred to as ‘spontaneous’ when a known cause does not trigger symptoms.
CSU is an unpredictable and debilitating condition which can affect daily life in many ways, including sleep deprivation, anxiety and social isolation.
In this video we meet Sandip, who opens up about her experiences living with Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria (CSU) and the impact of living with this often-debilitating condition.
