Do You Suffer from Hives?
Urticaria, also known as hives, is an outbreak of swollen, pale red bumps or plaques on the skin that appear suddenly -- either as a result of the body's adverse reaction to certain allergens or for unknown reasons. Hives usually cause itching but may also burn or sting. They can appear anywhere on the body, including the face, lips, tongue, throat or ears.
If you or someone you know has any of these symptoms, you may qualify for a research-related physician evaluation, study medication and compensation for your time as part of a national clinical study conducted by Deaconess Clinic allergists. You must be age 12 -17 to qualify.
Health insurance is not required for participation.
