Symptoms of Hives
If you have symptoms of hives, you are likely suffering from multiple welts on your skin’s surface that will often itch. Hives, also called urticarial, vary in size and are not limited to a specific area of the skin. Hives symptoms typically go away within 24 hours. If you have hives that last longer than six weeks, it is important that you seek professional dermatology attention for a chronic or systemic hives condition. Our qualified skin care experts are equipped to determine if your hives are developing as a result of a certain food, medication or environmental allergy. We understand how uncomfortable and irritating hives can be for a child or adult. You can trust Medical Dermatology Specialists to provide the most advanced and personalized treatment for hives relief.
What Causes Hives?
Hives are a triggered skin reaction that causes certain cells in your body to stimulate and release histamine and other chemicals into your bloodstream. Most commonly hives are caused by a specific allergen, such as food. Exercise, extreme temperatures and emotional stress are all factors that can also trigger a hives reaction. Dr. Weisman is the dermatologist you can turn to when conventional hives treatments have been exhausted. She has unique understanding and clinical research knowledge on the systemic causes of skin conditions.
Whether you have a mild temporary case of hives or you have suffered from severe hives for many weeks, Medical Dermatology Specialists can help you find a treatment plan that is best for you. Contact our Atlanta Hives Treatment Specialists today to schedule an appointment.
