Hives on the face in children
If you're here, it's because your little one has already started having an outbreak of hives on his face. Perhaps this is a common way of calling them, but it could be an infection or perhaps an allergic reaction.
Children are very prone to getting sick, by having contact with everything around them they can be victims of some infection, not necessarily risky, but very uncomfortable for their daily walk.
It is important that as soon as you notice the change, you assess the development of the hives. Many times it can be skin contact with infectious agents, some food consumed or a reaction to some medication.
Other symptoms besides hives on the face
Evaluate if the little one is having other symptoms, it can be fever or pain, since we well know hives only cause itching.
If you have any separate symptoms, medical studies and pediatric consultation will be necessary.
At the moment the evaluation can be done in a period of 3 days to 1 week, so you will know that no other symptom will appear even after the consultation.
