Can stress cause hives?
My first reaction to that question is that hives most probably could cause stress.
When you have swollen red or pink bumps, patches or welts on your skin that suddenly appear and itch like crazy, it will most definitely give you cause for concern and in some cases cause stress.
These welts can appear in varying shapes and sizes, from a few millimeters to several inches in diameter anywhere on the body, will disappear and then suddenly appear elsewhere.
