What are Hives?
Hives, known medically as urticaria, are a common skin condition characterized by raised, itchy welts on the skin. These welts can vary in size and shape and may appear as small spots or large interconnected patches. Hives can develop suddenly and often change in location, typically disappearing within a few hours but potentially reappearing in different areas of the body.
What are the Causes of Hives?
The cause of hives can be multifaceted, ranging from allergic reactions to certain foods, medications, insect bites or stings, or environmental triggers like pollen or latex. Other potential causes of hives include viral infections, stress, and underlying medical conditions.
