Is It True That I Am Allergic To Foods Because I Have Hives?

Question: Is it true that I am allergic to foods because I have hives?

Answer: In most cases of hives that are chronic in nature, lasting weeks at a time and occurring several times of the day, it is highly unlikely that there is a food allergy involved.

If in a particular circumstance the hives occur only after eating a select food and on repeated occasions with eating that same food, then it may be an indication that one is suffering from a food allergy. This may also be associated with other symptoms not just in the skin.
