We should be able to share our war stories. Instead, we shine them up, telling just enough of our tales of woe to feel like we're "relating" without putting ourselves in danger of being deemed the worst mother at the table.
Hives (urticaria) #Hives, a common allergic reaction that looks like welts, are often itchy, stinging, or burning. They may appear anywhere and last minutes or days. Severe hives can cause difficult breathing (get immediate medical attention if this occurs). Medication, foods, or food additives, temperature extremes, and infections like a sore throat can cause hives. Removing the trigger often resolves the hives in days or weeks. Antihistamines can provide relief.
