The course of physical and/or common urticaria and its influencing factors were evaluated over time in 91 patients. The study was conducted by means of a questionnaire, which examined the diagnosis, possible causes, frequency and evolution of the skin manifestation, and any other associated disorders. More than half (56%) of the 91 patients went into complete remission within 18 months from the onset of urticaria with an average recovery time of around 5 months. No significant difference was observed between physical and common urticaria in this respect. The appearance of new forms of physical urticaria or referable symptoms in patients already affected with the common or physical form was also observed.
