Raised red or pale yellow wheals, sometimes surrounded by
an inflated border on the skin might be a sign of hives food
allergy. Though hives can also develop due to non-allergic causes,
a hives skin allergy that develops in response to an allergic
reaction is more common.
Over 20% of the cases of acute hives occur in response
to eating allergenic foods, such as wheat, eggs, nuts, chocolate,
and fish. Welts of hives
food allergy vary in size and color. They are typically itchy,
burning, and painful.
Allergy and Hives
The allergic method responsible for hives involves the
release of a chemical called histamine by the mast cells. When mast
cells release histamine, it circulates in skin capillaries and the
endothelial cells, and it provokes a reaction, which results in a
leakage of liquids from the capillaries. This process
causes rashes and itchy skin.
