Hives: Gone by morning sounds like hives. Bites last much longer.

How can I make sure my baby is warm enough at night without using blankets?

Dress appropriately: In general when dressing your baby you can dress them as you would dress yourself plus one thin layer. In wintertime, depending on your home temperature, it is usually best to dress him with a short sleeve snap top, followed with a warm footed one piece. If this is not enough, add another layer and see if your baby is sweating. In the warmer months remove layers accordingly. No blankets needed.

Why has my baby started waking up hysterical at night?

New stage/habits: This may be prior to your baby reaching a new developmental stage, hunger, a need for soothing, and/or may be related to an illness (fever). Another cause is a night terror, an episode during which your baby may be screaming but is not really awake. Just check on him to make sure he's ok but do not intervene. You may change the terror by slightly waking him just before the time it occurs nightly.

Itchy hives: The itching associated with hives is usually responsive to at least some extent to oral antihistamines, but often require higher than standard doses.

What could be causing my recurring hives, welts?

Wish we knew: That is a question that as an allergist is very perplexing. In most people with chronic hives (ciu), hives going on for longer than 6 weeks, we do not find an external cause. Rather most people with ciu have very sensitive mast cells and basophil cells that readily release histamine causing the itching, reddness and swelling. Consider seeing a board certified allergist for evaluation & treatment.
