Urticaria



Urticaria, also known as hives, is an outbreak of swollen, pale red bumps or plaques (wheals) on the skin that appear suddenly -- either as a result of the body's reaction to certain allergens, or for unknown reasons.

Hives usually cause itching, but may also burn or sting. They can appear anywhere on the body, including the face, lips, tongue, throat, or ears. Hives vary in size (from a pencil eraser to a dinner plate), and may join together to form larger areas known as plaques. They can last for hours, or up to one day before fading.
In the case of white spots, instead of making more melanin, areas affected by sun damage stop making any melanin at all, causing these areas to completely lose pigment. Although these spots can be unsightly, they are benign. NOTE: Do not confuse the white spots from sun damage with the skin disorder known as vitiligo.
