Hives, medically known as urticaria, are red, raised bumps or welts on your skin that may itch and can cause significant discomfort. Hives can spread or show up on a different part of the body.
Hives result when the body releases histamine, causing an allergic reaction throughout the body that can manifest as hives. Hives have a variety of causes.
The most effective treatment for hives is to remove the trigger that caused the reaction, and to avoid exposure to that trigger in the future. For instance, if a new medication or antibiotic resulted in hives, stop the antibiotic and ensure that in the future, this antibiotic is not prescribed.
Stress can cause your body to develop hives. When exposed to stress, whether short or long term, your immune system starts to break down and it releases histamines into the body, generally treating stress as an allergen.
Cold compresses are the best treatment for hives. You can even apply ice directly to the skin. If cold temperature makes your hives worse, this should be avoided.
