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?
