Understanding Hives (Urticaria)

Hives, medically known as urticaria, are itchy, raised welts that occur on the skin. These eruptions can vary in size and shape and appear anywhere on the body. While hives are often a sign of an allergic reaction, they can also result from other triggers like heat, stress, or infection. Chronic hives persist longer than six weeks and sometimes their cause remains unknown.

Our Approach to the Treatment of Hives

Our dedicated team offers comprehensive care tailored to your specific needs. We begin with a detailed assessment, which includes a thorough medical history review and physical examination. We might recommend diagnostic tests, such as skin tests or blood tests, to uncover potential allergies or other causes.

Armed with this information, we develop a personalized treatment plan. This might involve medications to control the itchiness and inflammation, advice on trigger avoidance, and in some cases, advanced treatments like immunotherapy. Our goal is not just to treat the hives but also to manage any underlying conditions that may be contributing to these outbreaks.

Patient-Centered, Empowering Care

Education is a key aspect of our approach. We believe in empowering you with a solid understanding of your condition and its potential triggers, which can help you make informed decisions about your care. We strive to provide you with the tools and strategies necessary to manage hives effectively and limit their impact on your life.
