Do hives go away completely or leave dark/dry/grazed areas?

Hives tend to vanish without trace ,although sometimes I get left with bruises

Do hives go away completely or leave dark/dry/grazed areas?
I posted yesterday about the reaction I had over my tummy tuck scar but it’s definitely dying down but going dark with skin flaking off. I just hope the darkness starts to fade, it’s making me wonder what it was in the first place!

Rael Briscoe that’s what I read which is making me wonder what’s going on.

Hives can cause bruising sometimes as well as the procedure itself I’m sure

Lauren Murphy
Tonya Wade Sheppard yes I was bruised initially but it had healed as I’m over 4 weeks post op. It’s definitely marks of the rash I had, very odd

Tonya Wade Sheppard
Lauren Murphy I’ve had them bruise on my legs and arms before

Selina Mae Gallegos
My c section looked liked this while healing. How far post op are you?

Lauren Murphy
Selina Mae Gallegos 4 weeks, it was healing but then had a big rash appear then it’s doing this. I think it’s separate to the wound healing.

Selina Mae Gallegos
Lauren Murphy at for 4 weeks I would agree. If you were still within 1-2 weeks I’d say it could be normal. A lot of times muscles bruise and can become inflamed. Did your surgeon say if it was okay to use a small amount of hydrocortisone cream or anything? Are you binding it?

Lauren Murphy
Selina Mae Gallegos yes I’ve been prescribed some and it didn’t really help. I’ve not been using a binder for a few weeks. It’s starting to go thankfully but I don’t want to speak too soon as my other side is super itchy tonight!

I get the dark fade if I’ve had a really bad flare up. I got quite sunburnt over the Xmas Holidays – I live in New Zealand, on my tummy and thighs. My skin was NOT happy. Not only did I have sunburn, but got raised hives, it was so painful I needed ice packs. Then the fading has taken sooo long and was really dark, still not quite right 3 weeks later.
I can get dry skin with hives too especially on the palms of my hands.
