Genetic cause of rare allergy to vibration discovered

Posted: 03 Feb 2016 03:41 PM PST

Scientists have identified a genetic mutation responsible for a rare form of inherited hives induced by vibration, also known as vibratory urticaria. Running, hand clapping, towel drying or even taking a bumpy bus ride can cause temporary skin rashes in people with this rare disorder.
