Hives are itchy welts that can show up anywhere on your skin. They’re caused by an allergic or other type of reaction. They can last a few minutes or several days before they go away. Sometimes they’re a sign of more serious problems, especially when you have trouble breathing. Hives that recur or that last more than 6 weeks are considered chronic urticaria and require further evaluation.
If you have hives along with fever, nausea, stomach cramps, shortness of breath, and a drop in blood pressure after a bee sting, insect bite, or drug injection, that can be a sign of a life-threatening allergy.Common triggers for hives include:
- Foods like milk, fish, or nuts
- Drugs like aspirin or penicillin
- Food additives like flavorings and preservatives
- Bug Bites
- Extreme cold or heat
- Pressure on the skin
- Viral infections
- Skin contact with allergens.
