Hives are a sudden outbreak of swollen, red bumps or welts on the skin — either as a result of the body’s reaction to certain allergens, or for unknown reasons. Hives can cause severe itching, or may even burn or sting. They can occur individually or cluster together to form one large welt. Welts can vary in size, change shape, and appear and go away repeatedly. They can also cause painful swelling of the lips, eyelids and inside the throat. If you experience symptoms of hives and are seeking treatment contact Dermatology Solutions today. We offer same day appointment options so you can get the treatment you need quickly and conveniently.

Signs and Symptoms

Many different things can be triggers for hives. Some of the most common triggers include:

  • Infections
  • Stress
  • Exercise
  • Changes in the environment
  • Insect bites and stings
  • Allergies to foods, medications, or skin products

Treatment Options

Antihistamines, cortisones and anti-inflammatory medicines are most often used to treat hives, although persistent, unexplained hives require further examination via blood and allergy testing. Hives are generally not dangerous, but in some cases, they may occur deep within the skin, causing the airways to swell and restrict breathing. If this occurs it is important to seek immediate emergency attention.
