In brief: Food allergy

Urticaria is a common presentation of food allergy.
The common food allergens r peanut, tree nuts, milk, egg white, wheat, seafood, etc. But any food can cause allergy. Urticaria can also happen w drug allergy, sometimes pollen/animal allergy, but not as often. Sometime urticaria can happen w no obvious reason. See an allergist if it bothers u often, or u suspect it is due to an allergy.
