One thought on “What are Hives?

  1. Arti says:

    An allergic skin reaction can be triggered by many substances or conditions, including medicines (pain killers or antibiotics), foods (egg, shellfish, and peanut), illicit drugs or alcohol, bacterial or viral infections, blood transfusion, insect bites, pollens, pet dander, emotional distress, hot or cold climate, sunlight, scratching, or exercise. Hives, also known as urticaria, are slightly raised, itchy rashes on the skin that may eventually convert into inflamed welts. A hive is a type of skin rash that can result from drug or food allergies. Such rashes can appear on any part of the skin and may fade quickly or persist. The most common symptom of hives is red or skin-colored itchy bumps on the skin. Another typical feature of hives is blanching, which means a red bump can turn white when pressed on the center. They may also come back again after a short while.
