I Get Hives When I Sit On My Couch
I get hives on my legs every night but they disapear within 5 minutes when sitting down. Can hives really disapear when you sit down? Confused
An allergic reaction: Hives occur when mast cells release histamine. Histamine makes nearby nerve endings fire causing the sensation of itching & iincreasing blood flow causing redness. Small veins leak plasma (the liquid part of blood) causing local edema - that's the white bump. Hives lasting 6 weeks or less are usually caused by a virus or an allergic reaction to a food, medication, insect bite or sting.See 1 more doctor answer
No: For people that have had hives for a long period of time (more than a couple months) they may get better and worse in intensity off and on, but don't usually worsen steadily or progressively. However, they may continue for a long time, which can be frustrating. Usually, we can find a combination of medicines that controls most hives, but it can take some trial and error to find what works.See 1 more doctor answer
Anywhere on the skin: Some parts of the body react differently. Instead of hives the lips and eyelids often swell and hurt. This is called angioedema (see photo). This often occurs with the hands and feet as well. When the eye itself has an allergic reaction the white of the eye swells but the iris and pupil do not. This is called chemosis.
Yes: It is possible to develop hives to febreeze or any fragranced air freshener. Fragrance is a very common irritant to skin and it is possible to develop an allergy to anything at anytime. If you google "febreeze causing hives" you will find that numerous people have reported this. Discontinue use of febreeze and see your dermatologist if hives persist.See 1 more doctor answer
Hives:urticaria: I would suggest you to see an allergist. For now take antihistamines. Sometimes is difficult to find what causes it.See 1 more doctor answer
Cold urticaria: Hives occurring while exposed to cold or while warming up after cold exposure are in a class of non-allergic conditions called physical urticaria. No allergy antibodies are involved. Antihistamines taken 30-60 minutes before exposure may help. Swimming in cold ocean water can be fatal for those with cold urticaria.
Hives: Hives can be caused by allergic reactions, chemicals in foods, insect stings, sunlight exposure, or medicines can all cause histamine release. Sometimes it's impossible to find out exactly why hives have formed. Hives can also be caused by infections or systemic disease. See your local allergist for help.See 1 more doctor answer
How do you stop the itch I tried everything. The hives are mostly gone it's dry how do I get it to stop?
Itching: If the itching is from dry skin, you need to moisturize it, use a non fragrant moisturizer.
I get hives in the fall. It usually starts after the first frost. Is temperature change a cause of hives?
Possibly: Hives can be triggered from any number of things, including certain exposures. Going from a warm home to a cold environment could be enough of a noxious stimulus to trigger histamine release, thus precipitating hives. Other causes are stress, certain ingested chemicals, and obviously, allergies.See 3 more doctor answers

? Chronic urticaria: May be also physical urticaria, or something at work that triggers your symptoms, stress can, keep taking a second generation antihistamine regularly if you're already taking it as needed, or start an OTC one, unless contraindicate.
