Hives: Hives are a very common but annoying symptom. Take a long-acting non-sedating antihistamine like zyrtec or allegra 1-2 times/day to help with itching. Hives can be caused by many different things (food, medicine, insect sting, being sick, latex, other exposures, etc). Often we do not find a cause for hives. If hives last a long time or are associated with difficulty breathing, see doctor.
