... related and not due to any allergies. Does anyone have any home remedies to treat hives? I do not like taking prednisone but it has been the only thing that works
Has the dr tried you on atarax? It would stop the itching and calm you. As far as home remedies, baking soda or colloidal oatmeal in a bath help itching. Witch hazel is an oldie that helps. Benadryl makes a gel, and calamine lotion might help. Don't laugh but I think vagicaine is the best anti itch cream. I live in a wooded area with lots of mosquitos so I've had lots of practice with this.
