MEDLINEPLUS Definition: 

Hives are red and sometimes itchy bumps on your skin. An allergic reaction to a drug or food usually causes them. Allergic reactions cause your body to release chemicals that can make your skin swell up in hives. People who have other allergies are more likely to get hives than other people. Other causes include infections and stress.

Hives are very common. They usually go away on their own, but if you have a serious case, you might need medicine or a shot. In rare cases, hives can cause a dangerous swelling in your airways, making it hard to breathe - which is a medical emergency.

CTCAE Definition: A disorder characterized by an itchy skin eruption characterized by wheals with pale interiors and well-defined red margins.

NICHD Definition: A transient, itchy skin eruption characterized by wheals with pale interiors and red margins.

NCI-GLOSS Definition: Itchy, raised red areas on the skin. Urticaria are caused by a reaction to certain foods, drugs, infections, or emotional stress.

FDA Definition: Urticaria.

SNOMEDCT_US Definition: A raised, erythematous papule or cutaneous plaque, usually representing short-lived dermal edema

CSP Definition: usually transient vascular reaction involving the upper dermis, representing local edema caused by dilation and increased permeability of the capilliaries and the development of wheals.

MSH Definition: A vascular reaction of the skin characterized by erythema and wheal formation due to localized increase of vascular permeability. The causative mechanism may be allergy, infection, or stress.
