Your allergist can help sort this out. ...Read more

I get hives 3 times last month. Can't tell what is causing it. Not allergic to anything. Any ideas?

Non-allergic hives: Hives lasting over 6 weeks are called chronic and are almost never allergic and almost always "idiopathic" or of unknown cause. These hives are probably due to a problem controlling the cells in the skin which make and release histamine, mast cells. Bloods testing is almost always negative. Management involves giving larger than normal doses of multiple antihistamines. See an allergist. ...Read more

I have hives from stress, what should I do to treat?

I have hives from stress, what should I do to treat?

See a dermatologist: Maybe it is stress. Maybe you react to Aspirin or other med taken at times of stress. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a poor antihistamine and acts for only a few hours. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is used as a sleeping pill: you must not drive after taking it. Much better for hives are zyrtec, claratin, Allegra (get the generic) which are more effective ; safer. Homeopathy ; acupressure are strictly placebos. ...Read more
