Hives Center

Hives or urticaria is a condition characterized by raised, itchy and red rashes that can come up on face, lips, tongue, throat or ears. Most of the times this condition is a result of an allergy. When the body comes in contact with an allergen it releases a chemical called histamine into the skin. This histamine causes the blood vessels around the skin to leak fluid, which then gets accumulated under the skin & leads to rashes.
