 Hives

Hives also known as "urticaria", this is a skin disorder that can have a variety of causes, including drug allergies, insect bites, food sensitivities, and contact with irritating or allergenic substances. Itching is normally the first symptom, and it can be intense. This is soon followed by the appearance of patches of red, raised wheals that can grow, disappear, and reappear elsewhere, sometimes clearing in the center to form large ring-like areas. Hives usually last only a few days to weeks, then clear up on their own. A complete medical history and physical examination are often more valuable than laboratory tests for identifying the cause. Some people develop chronic hives, however, the cause of which can be extremely frustrating to track down. ...more

A lot of times hives are triggered by allergic reactions and the release of histamine in the body. The histamine causes inflammation problems including itching and swelling. Hives do not cause injury or damage to vital organs. However, the skin is the largest organ of the human body. The skin works with  other body systems to remove toxins and waste. Hives may be a reaction to foreign substances in the body. A substance does not have to get into the body because coming into contact with various substances, such as pesticides, hair spray, soap, shampoo, laundry products, and other household items can cause a hives attack. The severity of a hives problem can differ each outbreak. People can break out in hives just by touching a certain type of plant. Other people may develop hives only with a lot of exposure like over-consumption of a specific food. Chemicals can be a major cause of hives. Including things from household cleaners to perfumes may start a reaction. Other triggering factors are: alcohol, foods,  nervous conditions, and stress. Viruses may also cause hives, such as Hepatitis B and Epstein-Barr virus that causes infectious mononucleosis. Bacterial infections may also cause hive outbreaks of hives. Candida albicans and chronic hives linkage has been established in several clinical research studies. Antibiotics such as penicillin and related compounds are the most common cause of drug-induced hives. In the USA, 10% of  people may be allergic to penicillin. Almost 25% of these people will get hives, angioedema, or anaphylaxis which is a allergic reaction causing itching and difficulty breathing if they use penicillin.

EMERGENCY TREATMENT
Angioedema is a problem involving a reaction similar to that of hives, but affecting deeper tissues than just the skin, causing more diffuse swelling of the affected area. If angioedema affects the throat, a disorder known as laryngeal angioedema, the swelling can interfere with a person's ability to breathe. This constitutes a medical emergency. Gasping for breath and sudden, acute wheezing can be signs that laryngeal angioedema may be developing.  

If you suspect you may be developing laryngeal angioedema, have someone take you to the emergency room of the nearest hospital or call for emergency medical assistance immediately. Emergency personnel will administer epinephrine, in both injectable and aerosolized forms, along with intravenous antihistamines. Depending on the severity of the problem and the response to treatment, other treatment may be required, including the administration of oxygen, placement of a breathing tube down the airway, or even a tracheostomy, in which an opening is cut in the front part of the throat for the insertion of a  breathing tube directly below the problem area.
