pI ask, because I'm trying to determine if a couple of contact reactions Matt has had would be considered "hives". Also, if this NEW rash on his bum/legs/waist would be considered "hives"./p
pI've always considered hives to be red, raised blotches...like welts. Is this the ONLY way hives can appear? Or could reddish/purplish spots (or dots or circles, whatever!) be considered hives as well? And what about red, swollen skin, with raised bumps? Would that be hives too? Any info is appreciated! =)/p
