Cam hives be a symptom of herpes?

I have hives, do I also have herpes?


Answer by  ushudno (155)

hives are a kind of skin rash notable for dark red, raised, itchy bumps. Hives are frequently caused by allergic reactions and can not be herpes.


Answer by  bigdog22 (308)

No, hives are normally from an allergic reaction. Generally they are caused by an irritant, like a new soap, shampoo, or possibly contact with an organic object you are allergic too.


Answer by  debmalewski (1085)

Not necessarily. Hives are usually a symptom of an allergy, while herpes are the result of a virus. Herpes usually occur in the mucus membranes of the body (eyes, mouth, genitals), while hives can be anywhere and are not contagious to others. If you are concerned you should probably see your doctor.

Are they on the genitals? If they are it very well could be a symptom. If you think you have herpes go to your Physician and get tested.
