Hives, also known as urticaria, is a skin reaction characterised by itchy, raised marks on the skin. Symptoms include intense itching, redness and swelling.

Common triggers include medications, infections, emotional stressors, leaky gut, food allergies and intolerances.

Diagnosis can be based on special diagnostics, such as allergy and intolerance tests.

Treatment options range from antihistamines of natural or chemical origin to relieve itching and swelling to identifying and avoiding triggering factors.
