What to know about hives

Most mums have heard of hives, but many of us haven’t actually seen a real-life case of hives. Although we don’t often refer to hives as a rash, that’s exactly what it is – a rash that looks like big, round, red welts (sometimes called weals or swellings). The medical term for hives is urticaria.
