a friend of mine has an 8 yr old little girl who will from time to time, break out in hives from head to toe completely. They have been to an allergy doctor and have started allergy shots. Mainly she is allergic to grasses and molds and mildly to a few foods. They have been doing the allergy shots for about 6 months, but she continues to break out in these hives. The last episode of hives lasted 3 or 4 days and when the hives were gone, there were severe bruises everywhere there were hives. She is worried there may be more going on than just alergies. anyone have any advice?
