 Hives, Children and Outbreaks

Hives are an allergic response and are triggered by the production of histamine from white blood cells referred to as mast cells. We notice hives usually in young children. Most of the time we never establish the cause of the skin condition. This is known as idiopathic, or of unknown cause. This article will introduce you to hives children and outbreaks.

As far as hives children and outbreaks are concerned, viruses are usually the culprit. Antibiotics can trigger an allergic reaction in your child. sometimes, he or she will suddenly develop hives right after a dose of antibiotic, and at times the outbreak can show up even after your child has been taking the medication for many days. you may wonder about the reaction, since your child has never had that kind of allergic reaction before. an allergic response is the body’s way of reacting to an element to which it has created proteins known as antibodies. it may take any number of exposures to a particular drug before there are adequate amounts of antibodies to trigger a reaction.

If you are concerned about hives children and outbreaks, your first step is to familiarize yourself with the common triggers of hives during childhood. these may include drug reactions, exposure to heat or sun, food allergens, eczema, underlying disease, intertrigo, infestations and skin infection. Treating hives in general will require some patience, as different individuals will have different triggers and not respond to treatment the same way. you should attempt to establish what is causing hives in your child and then seek the appropriate treatment.
