What is the difference between hives and a welt. When

What is the difference between hives and a welt. When I wake in the morning I often will have swelling around my right eye. The swelling will last for several days at a time. Could this be related to a change in my blood pressure medication? My PCP hasn’t not been able to figure this out...could this be an allergy. Thank you

I tend to get welts and hives on my face. It only comes at night and I know when I have it because my face starts to feel hot and stiff. It started a month ago and I have been treating it with Benadryl. It still continues to happen, and I have never been allergic to anything. What should I do?

hello, Doctor I have been breaking out in welts and hive for the last three years. I break out with these welts when I get upset or anxious. I have been to an dermatologist and he recommended an antihistamine (Zyrtec) which I have been taking for the last three years. I m worried it s something more serious should I be worried.
