  • Ive had the same thing since the last week in July. Been to doctors, hospitals, went in the hospital for a bit. Lately thought it was almost gone, then I got a few on my left arm on the opposite side of the elbow. Not sure if your elbows are swelled up though. The initial time they gave me prednisone for 15 days. That cleared up my hives, but I sill get these red lumps like a large mosquito bite. Then they get hard and by then I usually scratch them till there irritated. My eyes swell up here and there. This seems to flare up for a day or two them get better, just when your thinking your better it comes back. Ive been threw every test for everything and no one knows. I myself think its some bug that no one knows. And the way the medical system is now they just brush you off. Im in Alberta,Canada.
