Hives is not the way the body gets rid of toxins. Hives is a reaction to a person being sensative to chemicals, drugs or toxins which can all lead to hives.

The toxin that causes hives for you maybe completely different than what causes hives for someone else. It is your own system that has the reaction.

There are a few things that cause hives such as allergies, foods, reactions to outside stimuli like insects or chemicals in the air. One such hive can be caused by the oils in freshly cut grass released into the air.

There are a few things that cause hives. Allergic reactions, chemicals in foods, insect stings, sunlight exposure, or medicines all can cause hives. Hived are made by a histamine release and all these cause histamine to be released.

Hives are an allergic reaction from the immune system in response to an allergen on the surface of your skin - they aren't caused by specific toxins. If you are having frequent hives you should visit an allergist who can test a panel of common culprits to identify your triggers.


Answer by  Mallory (155)

Hives are not caused by toxins. Hives can be triggered by foods, drugs, infections, and diseases. Some cases of hives are idiopathic, meaning there is no cause. However, they are usually caused by an allergen which has come in contact with the skin.
