Whether they’re large or small, hives are unbearable. These red, itchy welts appear on the skin sometimes out of nowhere and without obvious explanation. Fortunately, most instances of hives will resolve within a few days.
What are Hives?
Hives, also referred to as urticaria, are an unexpected outbreak of red, itchy bumps that appear on the surface of the skin. Their cause may not be known, although it is often an allergic reaction. Hives may itch, burn, or sting, and cause a great deal of discomfort. Hives can appear at any location on the body, including inside the mouth, and vary in size. They may last only a few hours or a day or two before fully disappearing.
