Good luck finding your triggers. Hope you feel better.
An anti-histamine. Hives are raised, itchy bumps caused by histamine, a chemical released during an allergic reaction. Blocking histamine by taking an oral anti-histamine will help prevent new hives from forming, and help current hives fade away. For young toddlers, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) liquid is often used. For kids over 2 years, oral zyrtec or Claritin can also be used. Sometimes, Hydrocortisone 1% cream can decrease hives.
