Try antihistamines such as Benadryl, taken in doses of 25 milligrams and Chlor-Trimeton, taken in a dose of 4 milligrams! The best treatment for hives is to identify and remove the trigger. Antihistamines can also be prescribed by your doctor. Any comments?

    about hives (urticaria) We explain hives, the most common causes, symptoms, body parts most likely affected, treatment, tips for controlling urticaria. Hives (urticaria) is a harmless type of rash or skin allergy that is usually caused by an allergy. The rash consists of circular, raised welts on the skin that are usually itchy and occur in batches. Hives can vary in size, from a few millimeters to several centimeters in diameter. Urticaria usually affects the throat, arms, legs, and trunk. About 16% of the population will experience this rash at some time in their lives. Hives can be caused by medication, foods, and insect bites. When the rash lasts less than six weeks, it’s called “acute urticaria, when lasting more than six weeks it’s referred to as “chronic urticaria.” With chronic urticaria, it is more difficult to identify the offending allergen than it is with acute cases. In about 80% of chronic cases of urticaria, the offending allergen responsible is unknown. common triggers that cause hivesThe most common skin allergy triggers that cause hives include:• Medication such as antibiotics, codeine, penicillin, sulfa, anticonvulsant drugs, phenobarbital, and aspirin • Foods like shellfish, nuts, tomatoes, soy, chocolate, and berries • Pollen • Cat dander • Insect bites such as bee ans wasp stings Other causes of hives include: emotional stress, bacterial – viral – fungal infections, hepatitis B, parasitic worms, food additives, plants, cold temperatures, heat, sweating, and dermatographism (irritation from pressure or tight fitting clothes). symptoms of hivesSymptoms of urticaria are caused by histamine release from mast cells that exist deep within the skin. Common symptoms include: • Sudden onset • Red or skin colored welts that resemble mosquito bites • Welts change quickly re: size, shape, location • Itching • Welts commonly last about 24 hours • Angioedema – swelling of lips, face, and tongue treatment of hivesIf the substance or allergy responsible for your urticaria can not be found, the symptoms of urticaria will need to be treated. Antihistamines are the primary medications used to control hives and stop the itching: • Antihistamines such as Atarax, Benedryl, Seldane, and Tagamet • Corticosteroids – used in more severe cases • Injections of epinephrine – used in cases that involve life-threatening episodes • Avoidance of known allergens See how energy-based allergy treatment can eliminate allergies that cause hivesEven though I was initially skeptical about this treatment, I later found-out how quickly and easily this energy-based method eliminates allergies. If youd like to review the top vitamins, minerals, and herbs for allergies,allergies causing hives can be treated naturally tips for controlling hivesThere are some general measures you can take to ease the symptoms associated with urticaria: • Avoid heat; keep the temperature of the skin cool • Stay away from alcohol, as it causes flushing of the skin • Try not to scratch affected areas • Wear loose clothes that will not put pressure on the skin

    This is my review. I have also suffered with Chronic Urticaria and Angioedema. I have had it for about 2 years. I get it most days like you did. When I have chronic urticaria it usually starts as small bumps or wheals. sometimes wheals swell and turn into angioedema.

    What I tried;

    I have taken anti-histamine (3 times a day) every day for over a year to stop the chronic urticaria, but it doesn’t always work as I think I might have used them for too long. I also try elimination diet, but this is hard to do. Doctor gave me steroids which were good but I can’t stay on them as I think this is dangerous.

    So I got your book and have been using the treatment for 6 weeks. I was hoping that my chronic urticaria would stop like yours did in 3 weeks but mine took longer. It is easy to do but might take longer than 3 weeks, mine was better after 5 weeks. No wheals in last 8 days so very good.
