Abstract

Background. The etiology of cold contact urticaria is unknown and the therapy is therefore usually rather disappointing. Methods. This study reports therapeutic data on 42 patients with cold urticaria treated with a combination of terbutaline (3 × 5 mg a week, later 3 × 2.5 mg) and aminophylline‐containing drugs (3 × 150 mg). Results. Complete remission of the urticarial response was achieved in 37 of the 42 patients. Conclusions. The therapy was tolerated relatively well and the results are promising.
