Antihistamines: Antihistamines are the primary treatment for hives. Long acting ones like zyrtec or Allegra (fexofenadine) are often effective and easier to take than short acting ones like benedryl. If the hives are persistent or recurrent, see your doctor.

None: Creams are not effective. You will do much better with an otc antihistamine that is not sedating.
