Hives are raised, often itchy, red welts on the surface of the skin. It can occur anywhere on the body, such as the trunk, arms, and legs. Hives can be round, or they can form rings or large patches. Wheals (welts), red lesions with a red “flare” at the borders, are one manifestation of hives. It can also be caused by a number of other regulatory systems in the body in response to different types of triggers. Most episodes of hives disappear quickly in a few days to a few weeks.  Occasionally, a person will have them for many months or years.  New hives may develop as old ones fade.  Hives and angioedema can occur together, but they usually do not. Hives is the most common rash for which people seek emergency medical care. Hives vary in size (from a pencil eraser to a dinner plate), and may join together to form larger areas known as plaques. They can last for hours, or up to several days before fading.
