Hives – Urticaria

Hives are nothing but an allergic reaction which presents as itchy raised bumps. These bumps can occur on any part of the body.

The symptoms usually resolved within a few days and do not leave behind marks or scars.

Allergic reaction can happen to any of the following:
Food
Insect bites
Medicines
Anxiety
Cold temperature
Exercise
Sun exposure etc.

Unfortunately in most of the cases it is not possible to find the exact cause.


Treatment

The treatment is largely symptomatic in nature. It is targeted towards supressing the allergic reaction.

As difficult as it is to identify the exact cause of the reaction, it is best to put an effort on identifying it and avoiding the causative factor.
