Hives is a skin rash notable for pale, red, itchy
wheals or bumps. It is usually caused by allergic reactions; however,
there are many non-allergic causes. Some hives virus or viral
infections, i.e. acute viral infections can cause acute hives. It
is linked to hepatitis, especially hepatitis B and C and
hives skin allergy.
Many times, a solitary attack of hives is due to an infection or hives virus, which
goes away within a few hours to a few days.
Hives after Virus
You can develop hives after a virus attack, which is
evident by the presence of wheals. These wheals are red, pink, or pale
yellow swellings that may appear on any part of the skin. They are
itchy in nature, and each individual hive lasts a few hours before
fading away, leaving no trace. However, it is possible that new hives
may appear as the old ones fade.
Their size varies greatly; they can be the size of a pinhead or they
can cover broad areas of the body. The patient may experience great
distress due to the intense itch, but the skin does not usually scab.
Some patients also have a burning or stinging sensation due to hives.
Hives are a common occurrence, with nearly 10 to 20 percent of the
population experiencing at least one incidence of this skin problem in
their lifetime. It sometimes occurs in the deeper tissues of the eyes,
mouth, hands, or genitals, and may also cause swelling. The swelling
usually fades in less than 24 hours or so. The medical name of this
swelling is angioedema.
