Hi, Im new to this forum and would like to help from people with expirence with hives please.

About 6 days ago I started developing an itch. It would be worse at night but go away with benadryl and then not be their at all during the day. Then on the forth day I developed minor hives and went to the doctor. I took some benadryl and the hives went away.

They put me on predisone and i did not feel any itching. the past two days I have not had itching or hives while on predisones but the few hours in the morning (about 1-3 hours) between when i have not imediatley retaken predisone and applied benadryl the hives have appeared and have been more numerous the past two days.

My doctor said that it would take time to go through my system and that my allergic reaction would be a bell curve and peak and then go back down. How long does it take for an allergic reaction to pass through your system(I think i know the answer that its unique for each person)

As to the cause of all of this I dont know. I have never had an allergic reaction to anything in my life before. I did not go on any new medications and my dog is hypoallegenic?

Do I have chronic hives or acute?

any advice?

  • This particular infection is extremely violent and it also isn’t performing like other infections and might possess increased number of damaging bacteria simply because the human body has no chance to eliminate them. Strong prescription medication are typically recommended, particularly if the sufferers are familiar with the sort of the infection. If in fact the infection continues for five days or longer, and although you use prescription medication and it would not go away, you are required to perform a HIV test. At this point, the virus could be effectively determined, and also the test is regarded as the reliable technique to confirm the existence of the HIV virus and begin the treatment as quickly as possible. http://www.hivsymptomsblog.com/These types of manifestations generally adhere to the HIV infection in men typically as a consequence of loss of immunity. If we check out the HIV infection signs or symptoms in females, the manifestations show up a little bit later. And also men can easily uncover the infection sooner and start treatments earlier than the infection develops completely.Typically the signs and symptoms of HIV are usually felt earlier or later and this also varies from one individual to other. However, the first signs of HIV tend to be confused with the signs of winter flu or not so significant virus-like infection.
