Deciding how to Manage Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria (CSU)

Deciding How To Manage Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria (CSU)™​
Deciding how to manage your Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria (CSU)/Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria (CIU) can be overwhelming, confusing, and at times frustrating. The severity and frequency of swellings can change so much over time, making it difficult to predict when more intense management will be necessary. Intense management can also feel demanding in your daily life. This Shared Decision-Making Tool can help your Healthcare Provider learn more about where you are at with your CSU/CIU, and work with you to come up with or alter your management plan so that it meets your specific needs and goals.
