Avatar f tn Simple moisturizing creams, wet soaks, calamine lotions etc are generally enough to soothe the symptoms of hives of pregnancy. Try these along with Zyrtec. Zyrtec also causes hives, sounds strange when it is used for the cure. It is also possible that Zyrtec is aggravating your hives. Please take a skin test or RAST test to know what you are allergic to. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do consult an allergy specialist.
Avatar m tn i take zyrtec,allegra and alervert all day every day as my doctor told me for my hives .some days its real bad and others are very good. ive had no effects from the mixture.
Avatar f tn For pretty much the past 6 or 7 years, I constantly break out in hives whenever I touch anything. It could be that I sit on a chair and get hives on my thighs or open the fridge and get hives on my hands. I've gone to a dermatolagist several times, but even after a scratch test and everything, we've found no reasons for my random breakouts. I'm currently on Allegra and have been for years. I've tried claritin, zyrtec, etc. I need to know what ttis is and how to stop it!

Avatar n tn My grandfather was proscribed zyrtec after treatment for his bone cancer, I thought this was crazy too, but apparently it has cetirizine hydrochloride which has been found to greatly help in relieving pain, and is believed to help through an anti-inflammatory process. check this url out: shwachman.blogspot.com/2008/03/zyrtecmay-help-bone-pain.html This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/198474'>Zyrtec for bone pain??</a>.
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 m tn I have Discoid Lupus....and JUST started getting really bad hives from C-section scars up my tummy after giving birth to my 2nd child. I had lots of tests done saying I"m literally allergic to everything...food, outside, inside etc...to just take zyrtec and deal with it. I do not believe I'm allergic to all of that, I mean Potatoes?!? There is no way.
Avatar m tn My Daughter who is 19 years old has had severe hives ever since she was 5. She has been tested for food allergies and appears to have none, yet every time she gets sick, she breaks out from head to toe in raised hives on her body. They usually have to give her an epi shot, benadryl and steroids for them. Is their any way that a cold or virus is causing this? I am at my wits end and my daughter has had it after 14 years of this.
Avatar m tn For the last few months I have been breaking out in hives and itching, swelling (severe) espically when doing work or getting hot, possibly cold i am unsure, what might be causing this and what should I do or take. I have been taking benadrly but it keeps coming back.
Avatar f tn I get hives and I take something that is similar to zyrtec for it. Cetirizine 10mg given to me by my VA (veteran affairs) doctor. It's safe. Get well soon. I know the feeling and it *****.
Avatar f tn started taking zyrtec, seemed to help a little but starts up again so i also started taking zantac along with the zyrtec. i am still getting some hives and itching but now for about the past 3-4 wks now i'm also getting nausea, please help!

Avatar f tn Thanks so much for your response. I am not breastfeeding so I took some Zyrtec that my husband has for his allergies. Its only been an hour & the itching is soooo much better. Hopefully this condition is just due to my hormones & wont last much longer. I will take the Zyrtec til it does. Again. Thanks very much.
Avatar f tn My son is taking Zyrtec for random hives. He has developed a breakout that looks almost like bed bug bites. on his forearms,upper legs and back. Scaley in nature and severe itching. What could be the cause for this?
Avatar f tn Hello, I had hyperthryoid symptoms for a couple weeks, including racing pulse, flushed face, restless, increased bowl movements and persistent hives. These symptoms improved except for the hives. Recent blood test showed 7.5 TSH, TPO ab 381, Thyrodlobulin ab 51 and Free T4 is at 1.3, normal. All other blood work, CBC, normal. This looks like Hashimotos. Can a person first have hyperthyroid symptoms and then go to Hashimotos? I also have persistent hives.
Avatar f tn Went to a doctor and was priscribed over the counterver Zyrtec/Cetirizine for the hives. Took them and immediately the hives vanished. Everything was going fine until the hives started to come back more and mroe regularly to the point I had to start taking the Zyrtec everyday to control them.
Avatar f tn About two weeks after that I started to get hives. Now instead of hives I get like red marks on my skin. The hives literally itch and burn so bad. Zyrtec helps. The hives/welts/marks come and within minutes they are gone. They appear all over my body including face. This has been happening for two months now. I have been to both my doctor and dermatologist who have both said it is chronic hives. Could it really be chronic hives or does this sound like std? Please help. I'm scared.
Avatar m tn I usually spot a couple of small bumps which then spread all over my legs and turn into hives. Around my knees the hives are clustered and raised and flat. And on my thighs my skin becomes discolored and there are white splotches everywhere with a hive in the middle. I'll usually take a benadryl and it'll go away, but I'm sick of taking it. And it's odd because the only time I start breaking out is when i wake up.
Avatar n tn I usually take a zyrtec once a day and benadryl at night if I have a flare up. I recently had an outbreak of hives only on my hands. They itched like crazy and were all different sizes. The zyrtec took the itch away so it doesn't bother me at all but they are a bit uncomfortable. It's been almost two weeks and my hives are still there. What could cause this, especially since it doesn't itch anymore?

Avatar f tn Since December 7th 2015 I have been experiencing hives breaking out all over my body it all seems like it started after I was admitted to a hospital with an ectopic pregnancy once surgery was complete I felt something was not right and was back to the ER 3 or more times I was readmitted with a staph infection in the surgical area underneath my skin I was treated and released by December 24th I began to break out in hives terribly I tried Benadryl I tried oatmeal baths I went to a dermatologist e
Avatar m tn Have you tried claritin? I started using that to combat my allergies with perfume, but found that zyrtec worked better. I'm not sure about other allergy meds though, have you tried nasal sprays? Benadryl knocks me out in seconds so I understand not wanting to take it all the time- have you tried using the tablets and cutting them in half? I found a 1/4 of the adult dosage works well enough on reactions my Zyrtec isn't good enough for without causing excessive drowsiness.
Avatar f tn Several years ago, I began to break out in hives for weeks. I went to all types of specialists.... dermatologists, allergists, and finally an endocrinologist. The dermatologist ran a full blood panel and discovered that my TSH was 12 and that the hives may be a result. The endocrinologist somewhat agreed and begin treatment with levothyroxine. My dosage was increased to .125 during my pregnancy, however after my daughter was born in Feb. 2010, I stopped the thryroid medication.
Avatar f tn I've been getting hives for the past year or so. It comes fast and disappears fast. It can occur anywhere on the body, mainly on my arms and back. I often get an outbreak in summer and heat triggers it (eg: I can't go into a spa as my body will have a breakout straight away).
