Understanding Adult and Pediatric Hives

Hives (urticaria) are a common symptom of an allergic reaction. But how can you tell that you have hives? You can identify this distinctive condition by its swollen itchy patches, wheals and welts on the skin. They range in color from pink to red. These patches may emerge suddenly and can occur anywhere on the body, often accompanied by a burning or stinging sensation.

The Main Causes of Hives

Hives are frequently caused by an allergic reaction where the body releases histamine and other chemicals into the bloodstream. Histamine causes blood vessels to widen and become more permeable, allowing fluid to escape into surrounding skin tissues.

The result is a noticeable swelling of the skin – not to mention the onset of itching. At TexasAllergyMD we address the root cause of these issues, whether the trigger is food (like tree nuts, shellfish and eggs) or environmental allergies, including insect stings, pollen or dust mites.

How to Treat Hives

Treating hives often involves managing symptoms, and it’s crucial that your allergist identifies the true cause of your allergic reactions. Our expert allergy testing procedures are crucial in identifying the specific triggers, thus allowing patients to reduce their exposure to allergens. We also believe in offering innovative hives treatment options such as immunotherapy, sublingual immunotherapy and allergy shots.

Common Questions About Hives

Hives usually last for a few hours to a few days. The redness and inflammation usually eases within 24 hours. However, with a chronic condition hives could remain for weeks or months unless you seek treatment.

There are usually no long-term effects from having hives. However, chronic hives can impact quality of life and cause stress, discomfort and sleep issues. Getting medical advice for persistent or recurring hives is vital.

Scratching the itch does not cause hives to spread to other areas of the body. However, scratching can irritate the skin and actually lead to increased itching with a higher risk of infection.
