I want to know what could be causing it
Dermatologist: DrRussMd, Internist/homeopath replied 1 year ago

Most outbreaks of hives are cause unknown.

They come, they go and that is it.

Otherwise: allergy

In rare cases, autoimmune diseases.

If they persist, your doctor can do testing to rule out these other problems.

You need an exam.

This might be something else, like bites, or infection, and the hives are a reaction.

Go to urgent care and let them take a look.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
