Allergic asthma is also known as allergy-induced asthma and is caused by an allergic reaction. At the same time, chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) is a form of long-term hives that causes itchy, red bumps, or wheals on the skin. People with allergic asthma and chronic idiopathic urticaria usually experience symptoms when they are exposed to specific triggers.

Researchers are developing and improving treatment for conditions such as allergic asthma and chronic idiopathic urticaria (hives). This study seeks to determine the effectiveness of a new potential treatment for allergic asthma and chronic idiopathic urticaria (hives).
