Your Child's Health, Our Priority, Always

Hives, also known as urticaria, are a common skin condition characterized by raised, itchy welts or bumps on the skin. These welts can vary in size, shape, and color, and they often appear suddenly and can change location rapidly. Hives can be acute, lasting for a few hours to several weeks, or they can become chronic, lasting for six weeks or more. Often, the cause of chronic hives isn’t clear.
