When the hives do get bad, I have them on my eye
lids, and lips, very obviously. When the hives
moved to my face, I went on a diet that eliminated all food allergies for about a month, then I met a new boyfriend, the hives went away, and I quit the diet. I've also had problems with scented 'anything' that comes in contact with my body since I was in my 20's, so I do not use them.
