Single "hive" on elbow
« on: February 10, 2014, 08:53:24 AM »
I have a single, large, itchy hive (looks like a mosquito bite -- but it's the dead of winter. I can't see any bite marks either.) on my elbow, just to the left of the bone.

Could this be from rubbing clothes, or is it a tell-tale sign of some life-threatening allergic reaction?

I dont' think it's a life threatening allergy.  I sometimes get pressure hives in one spot.  That may be what you have.

I get those things a lot. They're annoying but harmless. Tend to always happen in winter. Unless it starts doing something weird, like turning to one of those "This can't possibly be a good color" colors, or starts bleeding or some other strangeness, there's no need to worry.

I get those on my cheek at times.  No idea where it comes from.  I always used to hear that anxiety and stress could bring them out.  I chalk mine up to that.  Sometimes I'll think it's almost gone then there it is again, came right back up.

Update -- The one on my right elbow has disappeared completely, but this morning I woke up with one on my right knee!

?????

Is this from rubbing during the night? Some sort of insect..? The cold? It doesn't seem like fleas or bed bugs because it's just one, solitary, mosquito-esque bite. And no bite marks... and it's under my clothes.

(Thanks for the replies!)
