If you wake up in the morning to find that you have red, itchy spots on your face, hands, or other body parts, it’s a very good indication that something isn’t right inside your body. Perhaps it was something you ate the day before, or a lotion that you applied to your skin before bed. Urticaria, commonly known as hives, can be a very serious matter, with the spots lasting for a few hours to constantly popping up and causing irritation. With a skin allergy test in TX from The Allergy and Asthma Center of Corpus Christi, we can determine the cause of your hives.
Even if you only experience hives every so often, it’s important that you have them checked. Something in your diet may be causing the hives to appear on your hands and fingers, and could be accompanied with swelling and tenderness. Hives can become extremely itchy and the more you scratch them, the more irritated your skin will become. Having hives appear on your face can also make you self-conscious about going out in public and being around others. The team at The Allergy and Asthma Center will help you find a solution and remedy whatever is causing your hives.
Making changes to the lotions and creams you use, as well as what you’re putting into your body can greatly affect the state of your skin. Instead of waking up with itchy, painful hives, you’ll get up every morning with soft, healthy skin. Contact us today to schedule your skin allergy test in TX.
