Re: Allergic to something in my bedroom
I actually have the same problem. I get hives only when I'm sleeping. I know they are also food related, but it seems to be something in the room that bothers me the most (they also so that allergies are typically worse at night due to your body shutting down for sleep). I bought a mattress cover that is supposed to help with dust mites, I also wash my sheets at least once a week, and we no longer allow the dogs to sleep in the bed. They slept in the bed for the past year and I never seemed to have any trouble, but like others have said, sometimes things that didn't bother you in the past will start to cause allergies.
All these changes didn't eliminate them completely since my hives are also environmental and food related, but it did help A LOT.
I also take a 10mg Zyrtec and 75mg Zantac right before bed. With that combination and the changes I've made, I am mostly hive free now.
