Hives, also known as urticaria, are a common skin condition characterized by raised, itchy welts or bumps on the skin. These welts can vary in size and shape and often appear suddenly, disappearing within hours or days.

Hives can be triggered by various factors, including allergic reactions to foods, medications, insect stings, or environmental allergens, as well as non-allergic triggers such as stress, heat, or pressure on the skin.

While hives themselves are typically harmless, they can be uncomfortable and distressing.

Our allergists specialize in diagnosing and managing hives through a comprehensive evaluation, which may include a thorough medical history, allergy testing, and other diagnostic tests to identify potential triggers.

We offer personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs, which may include antihistamines, corticosteroids, or other medications to relieve itching and reduce inflammation.

Additionally, we provide education on identifying and avoiding triggers to help prevent future outbreaks of hives.

By working with our team, you can find relief from hives and enjoy improved skin health and comfort.
