Prevent worrisome welts

Hives are raised red bumps or welts on the skin, triggered by an allergic reaction. They can be as small as a pencil tip, or as large as a dinner plate and can last anywhere from a few minutes to several days. Hives will often begin in one area, like the face, before fading and appearing on another area of the body.
