I have suffered from chronic idiopathic urticaria and angioedema for many years. I have read everything about it online anywhere and seen more allergists, dermatologists, internists, and endocrinologists than I can count.
I found this book to be worthless. I learned nothing that I did not already know. It is several years old, and out of date. It makes no mention of very promising studies done, mostly in Europe, that point to histamine intolerance, not allergy, as a likely cause of idiopathic urticaria. Don't buy it unless it is greatly updated.
