Sun hives, solar urticaria or sun allergy as it also known is an allergic reaction to sunlight which causes hives to appear on the skin when exposed to the sun, even for a short period of time. Sun hives is a sub-set of hives. Hives impacts around 20% of all people at some point in their lives.

Sun hives may be triggered by sun exposure after only a few minutes

Hives appear as red spots or welts on the skin and are highly irritable. Chronic cases can lead to headaches, vomiting and nausea and also lightheadedness. Hives can last for a short period of time or for a period lasting several weeks or more. Sun hives may be triggered by sun exposure many only for a matter of minutes.
