people are confused as to whether eczema and hives are the same
or if there is any difference between them. For a better understanding
and in making the difference between eczema and hives
clear, I am defining both the terms separately.
itchy hives, urticaria, or nettle rash, is a skin problem
characterized by the presence of red wheals on the skin, which may
cause itchiness. Hives can occur in response to an allergic reaction,
but there are also many non-allergic factors that can cause hives.
is a Greek word literally meaning “to boil
out.” Eczema is a form of dermatitis or inflammation of the outer
layer of the skin (the epidermis). Most of the time, people confuse
eczema with hives due to the similar appearance; however, eczema is
more likely to be found on the flexor aspect of joints, whereas hives
can occur on any part of your skin.
In the medical
arena, the term eczema is largely applied to a diverse range of
continual skin disorders. These skin problems include dryness and
recurring skin rashes, such as chronic hives or chronic urticaria.
skin problems are usually typified by one or more of these
symptoms: itchiness, dryness, redness, swelling, oozing, blistering,
crusting, flaking, cracking, and bleeding etc.
A hives and
eczema outbreak comparison will better differentiate between them.
Hives can be caused by allergic factors, non-allergic factors, and the
condition can be hereditary. On the other hand, eczema is mostly
believed to have a hereditary constituent. It often runs in families
whose members also have asthma and/or hay fever. With people who suffer
from eczema, itchy rash is particularly noticeable on the face and
scalp, neck, inside of elbows, behind knees, and buttocks.
If you have been
suffering from hives or eczema for an extended period of time and the
symptoms are not going away or if you are having additional problems,
such as asthma or low blood pressure, you should consult a
