In October 2004 I stopped taking birth control. My periods are still irregular from stopping the pills. Does anyone know if there is a corelation to horomones causing hives? I still have my hives, but they are not bad. On a scale of 1-10 1 being normal itching and 10 being extreme, my hives now are about a 2 at their worst. They were of couse a 10 when they first started & were raised welts. I am taking Claritin for them. In the last 2 months my hives are just itchy red marks that result from scratching. Anyone ever have hives after stopping birth control or while pregnant? Any help would be appreciated.
I've had dermographism for more than 5 years now but I have learnt to control it, its food what you eat in is actualy what you get out as itching.
Stop any thing made up of Sugar, oily deep fried stuff, packed food, spicy food. Make this for a week and you'll come to know whats the truth.
Sometimes foods like milk and milk products, yeast and yeast products could also trigger the itching.
Let you meals have more of greens and vegetables, they have lot of minerals that are vital for your body which you will not get in the foods mentioned above.
Let me know how is your condition now may be I could help you and many more like me.
