Hives are an outbreak of swollen, red patches, or welts on the skin that appear suddenly. With Spring right around the corner, many allergy sufferers are about to be faced with many symptoms that cause concern. Hives is one of these that is troubling to many people. At Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta, Dr. Jamie Weisman leads our practice as a nationally recognized dermatologist who believes that skin conditions are more than skin deep. Determining the exact culprit of a hives outbreak is essential to finding a lasting solution to this skin condition. Our dermatology practice is committed to treating the primary cause of your hives, not just the symptoms.

Hives typically cause the skin to break out in red patches or welts that are often very itchy; sometimes they burn or sting. They can appear anywhere on the body, and sometimes they seem to “jump” around from place to place. Hives vary in size – from fingernail small to as large as a dinner plate – and they can last for hours or several days. Allergic reactions cause histamine (a chemical) to release from specialized cells along the skin’s blood vessels, thus causing the red patches on the skin. While taking an antihistamine during a hives outbreak is often thought of as the best method of treatment, if a person does not know what is causing his or her hives, s/he is only covering up the problem. This is not how Dr. Weisman operates. She does not believe in covering up an issue, but getting to the root of it.

If you have reoccurring hives or someone in your family does, please contact Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta today. We are committed to helping you find a treatment plan that is best for you and your overall well-being.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
