  3. 3. What Are Skin Hives?
  4. 4. Do you think that you might be experiencing skin hives?
  5. 5. if so then you probably are wondering what is causing your hives and what can be done to get relief from the itching.
  6. 6. Here we will take an in depth look at why people commonly develop hives, angioedema and what you can do to relieve the intense itching.
  7. 7. Skin hives are actually extremely common.
  8. 8. They are so common in fact that it's been estimated that roughly 1 out of 5 people will experience the development and symptoms of hives at least once during their lifespan.
  9. 9. This is a skin condition that really packs a punch, and it's true medical name is urticaria.
  10. 10. From here there are some things that are important to address.
  11. 11. For instance, people will either experience 1 of 2 forms of urticaria (hives).
  12. 12. There is either acute, meaning that it is temporary and will not last longer on average for more than 6 weeks.
  13. 13. Acute urticaria can be so short as to only last for a few hours.
  14. 14. However, if you have noticed your hives have been around for longer than 6 weeks, then you probably have chronic urticaria, which can last anywhere from a couple of months up to several years.
  15. 15. In both cases of chronic and acute hives, the symptoms and physically noticeable spots (known as wheals or welts) can disappear from one part of the body and reappear on another.
  16. 16. During chronic urticaria, it's very common for a hives patient to experience an intense outbreak that can last for a varying range of time, and then have the urticaria completely clear up on it's own, only to reappear some time later.
  17. 17. For chronic urticaria sufferers it's very frustrating, because it can be a question of "when is it going to return?".
  18. 18. Earlier I had mentioned the spots that itch and are noticeable with hives.
  19. 19. These are commonly referred to as 'wheals' or 'welts'.
  20. 20. They can vary in size.
  21. 21. Some might be as small as a few centimeters, while others may be as large as several inches.
  22. 22. Typically these spots will have a whitened or blanched center, with obvious redness or inflammation around the edges.
  23. 23. The main symptom is that they itch very intensely.
  24. 24. Is there any swelling that you notice along with your hives? If so, the correct term for this is angioedema.
  25. 25. Allergists have explained that angioedema is deeper tissue swelling that many times can also accompany urticaria.
  26. 26. Hives are not believed to be life threatening, but the wheals can pop up on any part of the body.
  27. 27. The genitals, arms, legs, torso, buttocks, back and face are very common.
  28. 28. Although hives are not regarded as life threatening, there are two things that you should first know.
  29. 29. 1. The swelling known as angioedema can commonly affect the face and mouth.
  30. 30. This will cause your appearance to look puffy.
  31. 31. Your eyes can swell along with your lips.
  32. 32. The danger is that this angioedema can also occur within the throat, which could potentially constrict your airflow.
  33. 33. If you are having difficulty breathing and are feeling dizzy or lightheaded - then you may need emergency medical attention.
  34. 34. 2. In some cases urticaria can actually be a sign that you have something a little more troubling going on.
  35. 35. Without scaring you, I mean to say that many cases have been known to show that the symptoms of hives are actually the result of an underlying auto-immune disorder.
  36. 36. Requesting testing involving some basic blood work can shed a lot of light on this.
