my five yr old broke out in hives a lot this summer but since then it has been only once or twice. no itching or anything. well alst night he broke out in a few nad tonight. why is this
I understand your concern and it's my pleasure to help you in every aspect.
As per your description,it may be possible that some triggering factors like stress,heat,cold weather,excessive sweating,exercise,food may induce hives in your son.
And it's advised to give him anti-histaminic medicine ASAP to prevent it to spread or get worse over the time.
Give him plenty of fluids.
As he has recurrent episodes of hives so further a clinical exam by an Allergist or Dermatologist may be helpful to get a proper management.

Sometimes, a skin biopsy or blood tests are done to confirm that he has an allergic reaction, and to test for the substance that caused the allergic response.

Hope this helps.
