Hives Pictures and Treatments

Hives cause raised, itchy welts to appear on your skin and are often caused by too much stress or tension in your life or due to external factors that cause an allergic reaction. Your body reacts to the high amount of stress or the allergic reaction by releasing histamine into the bloodstream to fight the allergen. In essence, your immune system thinks there is a foreign substance (called allergens) in your system, and tells the body to release histamine to fight it off.
