Hives is a skin condition characterized by itchy, raised white bumps called wheals that are surrounded by a reddish area.
The most common area of the body where wheal occurs are the arms, legs, or trunk, but they can appear anywhere and last for several hours or even days.
The most common cause of hives is a histamine reaction that is triggered by allergies, especially to certain foods, such as strawberries, fish, shellfish, peanuts, soy, beef, citrus fruits, milk, and eggs. Drugs such as penicillin and exposure to chemicals, including those in common household products such as laundry soap, can also cause hives. To ensure long-term relief from hives, such factors must be screened for and addressed.
There are natural cures for Hives that do not involve the use of pharmaceutical drugs. The alternative therapies that are used to treat hives involve restoring the biochemical balance of the body, and making dietary and lifestyle changes designed to improve one's general health.
