Hives are red, itchy, raised welts on the skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes.
Hives are very common, and most often their cause is elusive.
While hives can be uncomfortable, they are usually harmless and will disappear within a few hours or days.
Hives Relief In this video, we’ll take a look at top 5 natural remedies to get relief from the symptoms.
1.Cold Compress Since skin irritation is the main symptom of hives, you should treat the skin to help alleviate the hives.
You can use a cool compress as long as you need to soothe away the hives.
Avoid using very cold water because, in some people, this can make the hives worse.
2.Pineapple Compress Crush some pineapple, either canned or fresh, and place it on a thin cotton towel.
Pull the four corners of the towel together and tie them off with a rubber band.
Place the damp, pineapple filled towel over the hives.
3.Baking Soda Paste Baking soda can be used to help relieve the itching of your hives.
Mix 1 tbsp of baking soda with enough water to make a paste.
Using your fingers or soft spatula, spread the paste over the hives.
4.Vinegar There are many healing nutrients in vinegar.
Pick any kind of vinegar and pour 1 tsp of it into 1 tbsp of water and stir.
Using a cotton ball or napkin, apply the mixture to your hives.
5.Calamine Lotion Calamine lotion is a mixture of zinc oxide and zinc carbonate.
It can be applied to hives to relieve the itching as often as needed.
When the itching subsides or you want to reapply, rinse off the calamine lotion with cool water.
