A 18-year-old female asked:

I've been getting hives for the past two weeks. sometimes they're red spots, sometimes just raised. they occasionally start to itch. i don't notice them because they don't start itching until there's new flare ups. i can't seem to find the reason why?

i think the best answer would be to see your PCP or an Allergist. Firstly, to make sure that these are hives and if they are, there are other causes for hives that are not on the basis of an allergic reaction. A through evaluation needs to be done.
