This is a vid about hives, in which I am currently experiencing. They are very annoying and some think they are contagious but aren't. They can be caused by an allergic reaction or they can be a factor of stress. There have been times where my hives have lasted a few days to a year. The doctors still don't know the main cause. I have been able to keep track of some things that make the vies worse. So that way I can stay away from it untill I can get my skin under control. But for me the fastest way to get rid of the hives is a steroid called prednisone. Only problem once the medicine is gone and you haven't stayed clear of what could be causing the hives or if you are still stressed they will come back.

I had a derm procedure done when my doctor was trying to figure out if something was causing my hives to linger around so long. At first it is kind of scary if its your first procedure because you don't know what to expect. But they help that fear by taking you step by step of the procedure.
