What is delayed pressure urticaria?

Delayed pressure urticaria is the body's delayed allergic reaction when it is exposed to a pressure stimulus. Hives may be seen after a delay of 4-6 hours after contact with the pressure stimulus. Examples of pressure stimuli are wearing of tight clothes or sitting on a hard surface.
