๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿปย  ย Hives represent an allergic reaction to food, insect bites, medicine, chemicals, etc.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿปย  ย With the increase in hormones and changes that happen in your body, it is possible that you become more sensitive to pathogens and experience hives while pregnant.

Causes

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿปย  As your belly grows to keep up with your growing baby, skin discomfort in the form ofย itchinessย and dryness can occur.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿปย  The dryness and stretching of your skin along with other changes can make you more susceptible to experiencing hives during pregnancy.

Some common causes of hives during pregnancy are noted below:

It is important to take great care of your skin as to not worsen it.
