Hives can occur in isolation or as part of a more significant syndrome. They appear suddenly over a few minutes and look like a small raised bump on your skin, that is red with a central area of clear skin. They typically occur in groups, and disappear just as suddenly as they began.
To treat hives, you can take a number of antihistamine medications to reduce the itching and swelling. Diphenhydramine (Benadryl), cetirizine (Zyrtec), and loratadine (Claritin) are the most common of these types of medications. For more severe reactions, a doctor can prescribe an epinephrine injection, or recommend you have an EpiPen in case of serious allergic reactions.
Hives can be part of a serious allergic reaction, so if you have trouble breathing, nausea, abdominal pain, or faint in conjunction with hives, seek emergency medical attention.
