My name is Pat, and I am a sophomore in high school. I am a healthy, very social teen who also plays hockey. My urticaria started out of nowhere mid December, and every day since I have broken out into awful hives.
I went to the doctor, and he said to try antihistamines, which have no effect at all. These hives are ruining me because I can’t talk to girls anymore or laugh really hard with my friends without stinging like hell.
This is really putting me down and the thought of having this for the rest of high school worries me. I guess I’m just asking for advice on how to deal with my hives because lately as I said I’m not enjoying life that much.
