What are Hives?

Hives are an allergic reaction to food, medication or another substance. Other factors that can lead to hives are stress, illness, infection, exercise or an underlying health condition. This skin disorder is usually temporary but can last six weeks or longer. Hives appear as skin bumps that form when your immune system mistakenly releases histamine to protect against potential threats. There may be no identifiable cause for hives for some individuals.

Symptoms of Hives

The symptoms of hives include raised areas of the skin in various shapes and sizes. Hives can appear as patches or round rings anywhere on the body. These bumps or welts can create irritation and itchiness. Get immediate medical help if you experience difficulty breathing, swelling, dizziness, wheezing or tightness in your chest. These symptoms can signify a life-threatening infection.

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.

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.
