Get Hives & Urticaria Treatment Online

With PlushCare’s same day hives treatment service, you can meet with a top online doctor, get diagnosed and receive the treatment you need. Our doctors can determine whether you have hives or something else altogether and prescribe the appropriate treatment plan. 

Hives, also known as urticaria, are a skin condition that may be an allergic reaction to drugs, infections, insects, foods, plants, or other allergens. Hives are extremely common and manifest as small itchy bumps on the skin that are red and often come in groups. Hives occur quickly, and go away within a few hours.  Hives can be part of a serious allergic reaction, so if trouble breathing, nausea, abdominal pain, or fainting occur in conjunction with hives, seek emergency medical attention.

Symptoms of Hives & Urticaria

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.

Treatment Options

Treating Hives & Urticaria

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. If you are concerned about your hives and having allergic reaction, it is important to seek emergency help.


Meet with a PlushCare doctor to discuss your symptoms and treatment options. If the cause of your hives in unknown the doctor may recommend allergy testing.
