: : FOR THE LAST FIVE MONTHS I HAVE BEEN SUFFERING FROM CHRONIC HIVES. IT COMES AND GOES. SOMTIMES IT LAST FOR WEEKS AND SOMETIMES JUST DAYS. i HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM ALLERGIC TO . PREDISONE sometimes help and i do take Benadryle. I was without hives for three weeks and my hair needed to be highlightened terribly,so i figured before i get my hair done i would take benadryle 2hours before my appt. Well i took my pills and i was on my way there and all of a sudden i started to brake out with welts all over my fase,ears, neck and upper extremities. Six hours later,and i never did my hair i am covered from head to toe in hives. does any body think it is possible to be allergic to antihistimines, because thats the only thing i did different today.
I think this is called rosela not hives-I had them for 6 months. I took all the medicine they pres. I even went on a special diet of just rice and chicken breast. I had welts and my hands would get swollen up and my feet. The doctors now say since I am a caring of them I can give them to my family. This can last up to 6 years....
