Hives a common name for urticaria, is a kind of skin rash taking the form of pale red, raised, itchy bumps. Hives may cause a burning sensation and are usually caused by allergic reactions; however, there are many non-allergic causes.
Tiny as jujubes or as big as saucers, hives are formed due to the histamine released in the body by the cells, which make blood vessels leak fluid to the deepest of the skin layer.
There is no known reason as to why some get hives while others don’t. The triggers associated with hives could be anything from sunlight, cold, heat, pressure, stress, viral infections, and medications to anything that can cause allergy.
Usually, simple anti-histamine can reduce allergy that cause hives. Choose one of the medications that do not cause drowsiness. Meanwhile, try some of the home remedies to get the needed relief.
