In brief: Acute Urticaria/Hive

Acute urticaria (hives) is common, affecting 20% of the population.
Acute hives resolve within 6 weeks (most patients fit into this category). Hives can become chronic if last more than 6 weeks. Common viral/bacterial infections can trigger an outbreak like bronchitis. Medications, foods, and stings can also cause acute hives but have the potential to lead to more serious complications.

In brief: VisualDX

Hi, it’s hard to say without a picture but there is a great app that may be able to help you get a diagnosis without being seen in person by a dermatologist.
The app is called VisualDX and is one of the best, if not the best out there. Many clinicians, including myself, use it. Just snap a photo and it gives you a list of possible diagnoses. Good luck!
