The question of ‘where do hives come from?’ has a simple answer and an answer with several different kinds of bees in it. So, let’s get started. In this blog, we’re going to look at the different kinds of bees that can cause ground nests, including their types and their behaviour. We’ll also talk about why ground nests might be better than regular hives.
Where do hives come from?
Hives are very itchy, with red patches of skin that can be painful. They can appear anywhere on the body, but most often appear on the neck, chest, stomach and back.
Hives are a common skin condition that causes reddish, raised patches on the skin. It can be itchy or painful and can appear on almost any part of the body. In most cases, hives go away after a few weeks without treatment.
Most people with hives have an allergy to something they’ve eaten, drunk or touched or to something else they’ve come into contact with. Hives are different from eczema in that they’re usually caused by an allergic reaction, while eczema is not.
An allergic reaction is your immune system overreacting to something you’re exposed to. If you come in contact with the substance that triggers your allergy (called an allergen), your immune system releases chemicals such as histamine that cause inflammation and swelling in the affected area.
Hives can be triggered by:
allergens in food (such as egg white)
medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen
Hives are a physical condition, not a medical condition. They’re thought to be caused by an overreaction of your immune system, which causes histamine to flood into the skin. The resulting rash is not contagious and you won’t get hives from being near someone with them.
