Homeopathy Treatment for hives

Hives can be recognized by blisters on the skin that are very itchy. The lesions look just like the little blisters that form on the skin after touching a nettle. The name of nettle rash (urticaria) is derived from the Latin name for stinging nettle, “Urtica”. The cause of hives is not always easy to find. The disease is very distressing and stressful for those affected, especially when the rashes become chronic.
