Although it can be difficult or impossible to identify the cause of hives in some cases, when triggers can be identified, the affected individual can avoid them when possible. Hives may develop within a few hours of contact, which makes triggers easier to uncover. People who are uncertain of their triggers can try eliminating the most likely culprits, such as milk products and nuts. Doing so may reduce or eliminate the frequency of hives.
