MC Yeung 楊文秋

Abstract
Urticaria is a fairly common paediatric disorder. The prevalence was reported to be 2.1-6.7%. Management of chronic urticaria in children can be challenging. A good clinical assessment with appropriate investigations will lead to a correct diagnosis. This article is a broad review of the approaches to assess and manage chronic urticaria in children.
