allergic hives look like


Hives and rashes are widespread symptoms associated, in many cases, by an allergic response to a food or an allergen that your body has come in contact with.

Allergic hives look like raised bumps on your skin. They are often extremely itchy and may be painful as well.

Allergic hives may also look like the same type of skin reaction caused by a bee sting.

Chronic hives is a situation that can be life-threatening to some. Now, evidence is coming forward with good proof that a lot of cases are caused by a protein  that your own body produces.

According to Joseph R. Perez, M.D, an immunology specialist at Allergy & Asthma Care of Houston, "Growing evidence supports that a good portion of unidentified chronic hives may actually be caused by your body producing an antibody or protein that reacts with certain allergic cells or allergic proteins in your skin leading to daily hives."

But can chronic hives be caused by being allergic to yourself? "Sort of," says Joseph R. Perez, M.D., an allergy/immunology specialist at Allergy & Asthma Care of Houston (http://www.aachou.com) in Sugar Land, Texas. "Growing evidence supports that a good portion of unidentified chronic hives may actually be caused by your body producing an antibody or protein that reacts with certain allergic cells or allergic proteins in your skin leading to daily hives."
