Hives, also known as ulticaria, is an outbreak of swollen red pale bumps on the skin that appear either as a result of a reaction to some specific allergies or for some completely unknown reasons. This may cause itching stings and burning sensations in the affected area and may appear on any part of the body, including the lips, tongue, face, throat, or ears.
Hives may vary in sizes and may join together to form larger outbreaks that are often referred to as plaques. These plaques can last for hours or more than a day before they finally fade out. Some other hives last for weeks —these hives are called acute hives, while other hives that last more than 6 weeks are called chronic hives.
