"Hives" are often used non-specifically to describe many different skin lesions so I would have your rash looked at directly in order to make the correct diagnosis. Hives do tend to itch and individual lesions usually appear and resolve completely within 24 hours. See your doctor for further treatment and evaluation. ...Read more

Symptoms can include: severe pain at bite site after about 4 hours, severe itching, nausea, vomiting, fever, blistering, necrosis (tissue death). ...Read more

I have noticed a red spot in my right eye...it was a little itchy prior to this but don't know if its connected. The right eye is slightly red and gla?

Red spot by itself: Is not a big a deal as many red spots together appearing on your eye. Do you know what you were doing prior to it appearing? That's also a good thing to know. What is 'gla'?
