Hives

Hives Facts

 

Hives, also called urticarial, are welts on the skin. They can range in size from a small dot to large welts that cover a lot of skin area, often connecting to form larger hives. An individual hive often goes away within 24 hours. Most instances of acute hives last less than six weeks, although some people are affected by chronic hives.
