Hard to say: Rashes are common with lupus but are also seen with allergic reactions to ibuprofen. Have the rash evaluated. If you prove allergic to Ibuprofen you will also be allergic to Naproxen so stay off of both until your doctor evaluates the issue. ...Read more

I get hives from ibuprofen. Does that mean every type of nsaid causes me hives, or is this a one-specific drug situation usually? Would Aleve be ok?

No: Aleve is not okay. They is a higher probability you are allergic to that med as well as it is the same basic compound as ibuprofen. You can try another NSAID but these are all prescription meds. ...Read more

I've had a few small hives after taking ibuprofen and aspirin. Can i try aleve/naproxen? Never had swelling, breathing issues and don't have asthma.

No: There is a cross-reactivity between Ibuprofen , asa and naproxen. If you get hives on one, the same will happen when trying the other meds. Rechallenging yourself with Naproxen may cause you to have a far worse allergic reaction next time. ...Read more

Some people release histamine and get hives when exposed to cold temperatures, cold water, sunshine, stressful situations, etc... Other people with hives may have internal medical conditions such as chemical imbalances, intestinal parasites, etc... ...Read more

Take Benadryl: Hives can result for exposure to allergens and they can be treated with antihistamines wih or withou steroids. If notice this occurs only in your new home you may be able find the cause. An allergist may be able to help you to find the cause. Once the cause is known then you may be able to get your landlord to help eliminate the cause. For the most part the true cause of hives may not be found. ...Read more
