Abstract

Introduction: Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU), idiopathic generalized pruritus (IGP), and rosacea are significant dermatological diseases of unknown etiology that adversely affect patients' quality of life. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection in patients with CSU, IGP, and rosacea and to establish whether signs of dermatological disease improve with anti-HP eradication treatment in HP-positive patients.
