I brake out in hives after being in sea water. Don't happen in any other kind of water just sea water. As soon as i come out of the water im coverd.

Urticaria: I wonder if the salt water is also cold water like the ocean and if so you may be having what is called cold urticaria. The urticaria or hives will occur as the skin warms up. It will be itchy and red and raised up and often circular. For help you may want to see an allergist or dermatologist. ...Read more

When I drink whiskey I brake out in hives. Why is that? Should I be worried?

When I drink whiskey I brake out in hives. Why is that? Should I be worried?

See an Allergist: An IgE immune response to whiskey would be quite rare, but possible. Rye allergy (reaction would occur with many beers also), or sensitivity to an additive would be expected. Alcohol itself decreases threshold for histamine release, which would explain hives for non-allergic person. Important to determine the cause as treatment strategy (and knowing what else to look out for) varies. ...Read more

Everytime me and my boyfriend have sex I brake out in hives on my face real bad. Why is that?

Hard to tell: Lots of things can contribute to that - both conditions specific to you, such as how you react to heat, blood pressure, or the changes in the nervous system during orgasm, to things specific to your boyfriend such as the proteins on the surface of his sperm, or trace amounts of medications he may be taking that are present in his ejaculate. You need to see an allergist to help figure this out. ...Read more

I haven't been diagnosed with a peanut allergy, but every time I smell or get near any peanut or nut product, my throat gets itchy, and I feel hot as if I were running a fever, I brake out in hives and my throat starts to close up If do take Benadryl rig

I haven't been diagnosed with a peanut allergy, but every time I smell or get near any peanut or nut product, my throat  gets itchy, and I feel hot as if I were running a fever, I brake out in hives and my throat starts to close up If do take Benadryl rig

Allergy: This is consistent with severe life-threatening peanut allergy. It is not uncommon for allergic patients to experience symptoms with inhaled allergen alone and this is predictive of heightened severity of reactions with ingestion. Confirm with an Allergist. Carrying an epipen at all times would be highly recommended. Do not rely on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) alone. ...Read more

A itch started bout 3 months ago. Its all the time worsens at night and it's all over I will scratch until I brake skin! Eventually turns into hives?

A itch started bout 3 months ago. Its all the time worsens at night and it's all over I will scratch until I brake skin!  Eventually turns into hives?

Allergy or bites?: This could be symptomatic of hives (urticaria), which may be a response to a chemical or other exposure in your life. If they're worse at night, insect bites like bed-bugs or scabies are a consideration. See your doctor so that they can evaluate the rash in person. In the interim, try some Aveeno, an oatmeal based lotion. And take a Zyrtec or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) before bed for the itching. ...Read more
