It's usually viral in nature. But it can be from immunizations, medications or other types of illness. Sometimes we don't know what causes it. One thing for certain, it doesn't really respond much to benadryl, and it lasts a lot longer than just plain old hives.
Yikes! I just looked up more pics and it doesn't look to much like it thankfully. It sounds like it can turn into something much worse and I don't want that.

Its going away today, quite a bit actually. She doesn't look nearly so bad. I'm relieved about that but still worried about what caused it in the first place.
