Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

You may have hives - these can be brought on by stress and can happen at any age.

In terms of food, EmpowHER's Hive section suggests that the main culprits are often:

- Eggs

- Shellfish

- Nuts

- Chocolate

- Fish

- Tomatoes

- Fresh berries

- Milk

However, there are other factors like the sun, latex, medications, stress and infections that can cause an outbreak. Because hives are often reaction to something (an allergy), the body releases a nitrogen connected to the immune system called histamine and this in turn causes a physical reaction.

Allergy testing is a good idea.
Best,
Susan
