Allergic Skin Diseases
Hives and eczema are skin manifestations of allergies. Hives represent red raised lesions which are very itchy, and may appear and disappear within hours. Eczema is red, dry, scaly, and also very itchy, and may persist for weeks. These skin conditions may be secondary to food or medication allergy, but sometimes no cause can be found. Occasionally hives, especially those that are recurrent or difficult to treat, are caused by some auto-immune condition.
