Hives or urticaria are caused by allergy to milk or other substances in the diet or home. They are itchy and eased by calamine lotions.

No further treatment is usually necessary. They go away within about three days. But if you notice that your baby stops feeding well or begins struggling for breath you need to attend your physician right away as they may be having a more severe allergic reaction which will require intensive treatment.
