Hives on legs after fielding, what is the best treatment for this?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Jack Mutnick
16 years experience in Allergy and Immunology
Hives: Non-sedating antihistamines in increased doses (2x/day) can help to control the hives. Adding a topical anti-itch or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream can also help. If they persist greater than 6 weeks, get in to see an allergist.
