Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)

Stress can cause or aggravate hives. Studies have shown that emotional health affects physical health. Stress can cause problems with blood pressure, heart, and skin. It can also worsen existing conditions such as psoriasis or rosacea. On the other hand, reducing stress can make you look and feel better. Managing stress is one way to improve your physical health and appearance. It can decrease chemicals in your body that cause inflammation. Consult a dermatologist or allergist for more information.
