Avatar n tn For about 4 years now, every once in while, I have a problem with hives where I will get one or two hives on my body that come and go and always respond to taking a benadryl or even using topical benadryl spray. On top of this, when these hives begin occurring, I have also noticed a transient increase and decrease in the size of the lymph nodes right behind my jaw and below my ear that also comes and goes.

Avatar f tn I have skin allergies (hives) for four days now and they keep on coming back. I already had diphenhydramine injected to my system, which provided relief for at least 14 hours then my hives are back. They are worse than nights and I don't know what to do anymore. I avoided all foods that I can be allergic to, I barely eat anything tbh. Please help! Thank you.
Avatar n tn Take her off the ALLERGIA as that can cause bad hives. I got horrible leg pains and hives down both my legs that by the time I knew what caused it I had to use antibiotics to heal it. Try children's ZYRTEC and one Tagament a day. Watch for an hr to see if she gets a allergic reaction to what ever she uses or eats if earache, coughing,itching start remove what ever she is using or eating for one week.

Avatar n tn My diet is very limited. Could it be allergies and they just not show up on test? I have never had hives or itching just upper respiratory symptoms or stomach symptoms.

Avatar f tn A few things have been "different" in my health. I broke out in hives in late Jan without eating anything. Then in March I was having difficulties berathing along with diahrrea, chronic diahrea. Now in April, after starting to feel better, I started getting ithcy all over and waking up with scratches so I started using dove for sensitive skin wash and cerave lotion. Those helped a bit, Last weekend we went to eat. I had white rice, grilled chicken, and black beans.
Avatar f tn Two days upon my return I broke out in hives. This was before eating breakfast. My allergist gave me allegra 180mg twice a day, a medrol shot and I had taken benadryl. The bloodwork showed an IGE level of 1400 but didn't specify the allergen. In March I began having shortness of breath and was hyperventilating., From there I had chronic diahrea. I had fatigue for weeks. Soon after that I was waking up with scratches all over my body.
