I am a 33 year old female and I am now experiencing hives for the first time. This has been one of the most toughest things to endure. I work in the public as a Front office coordinator and I now have to explain what these things are all over my arms.
They are relentless and itch so bad its enough to drive one completely insane! I have to stop myself from itching because if I do, the hives erupt like crazy! They heat up and seem to grow. The largest one I had to date had the radius of the bottom of a pop can to give you an idea.
I’ve gone to the doctor and today I am finishing up my 5 day treatment of Prednisone. This has not helped at all. I have tried Benadryl, Claritin, and multiple itch creams and I have no relief 🙁
I too am starting to feel a major depression because of this. I don’t want to go into public because I am afraid people will look at my arms and wonder what is wrong. I look like ive been attacked by a swarm of mosquitos.
What do I do? What doctor should I see? Are there any natural remedies that can offer relief?
I am so lost and I feel as if the doctor im seeing is lost too! He wouldn’t even prescribe me a more potent itch cream than Triamcinolone 0.5%!
I need advice….help…. anything :*( This little lady is at her wits end!
