Hello everyone I'm 17 years old and I went to a concert where I picked up strep throat from someone but didnt realize til two days later. After waking up with the worst pain ever in my throat I went to the ER where I was prescribed Motrin (800mg) for pain and Keflex (500mg) to treat the strep. Five days later my strep went away and I was fine again til I broke out with hives from head to toe, I didn't mind until the night of the first day I couldn't sleep because of the itch.

I went to the ER again only to get a dr who didn't seem like he knew what he was doing, I was prescribe 10mg of claritin which didn't even do anything. It was the weekend so I couldn't see my regular doctor, once monday came I went to see my normal doctor and she prescribed me Prednisone 20mg and Benadryl 25 m. I've been on the medicine for two days now and my question is how long til the hives go away? The major itch went away but I still get minor itching. Any help would be great thank you
