Hives | Skin Rashes

Hives also known as urticaria, is a kind of skin rash with red, raised, itchy bumps that may burn, sting or itch and frequently occur after an infection or an allergic reaction. Often the patches of rash may be localized in one part of the body, move around or affect all the skin. Typically hives last a few days and do not leave any long lasting effects on the skin.
