How To Get Rid Of Hives.
Hives, also known as urticaria, are defined as a sudden outbreak of swollen, pale-red bumps or plaques on the skin.
Hives are usually caused by an allergic reaction to a substance that you encountered or swallowed.
Due to the allergic reaction, your body releases a protein called histamine, which in turn results in itching, swelling etc.
