The hive-conjuring spell (Incantation unknown), is a dark charm that causes painful hives to erupt on the victim's face.
Morfin Gaunt used this spell in the 1920s on the Muggle Tom Riddle Snr, for the purposes of derision and to uglify Riddle into convincing his sister to stop admiring him. Tom Riddle's face was put back to its original state and his memory modified. The Ministry of Magic wished to press charges on Morfin, who broke wizarding law by performing magic in front of a Muggle and openly attacking said Muggle. They sent Bob Ogden, head of the Magical Law Enforcement Squad to inform Morfin that he will attend a hearing on the fourteenth of September to answer for his crime.
