I am in my late forties and have noticed that for the past year I have been more and more prone to reactions from things that never produced a reaction before. The main one I have noticed is when I have to take Ibuprofen or Naproxen for severe menstrual pain. I have started to have swellings around my mouth and on one occasion my eyelid swelled up. I have also started getting hives but this can happen at any time and I do not have to be on medication. The most common time I get this is about 6am in the morning and it wakes me up. But this could happen one day and not the next. I have also developed rosacea and some days I wake up with it all over my nose and tops of my cheeks, both pustules and papules. What is happening to me? I haven't yet seen a connection to anything I eat or drink (I have tried keeping a diary) but I feel like this is only a matter of time before it happens.
You're getting older, lol. Allergies develop over time when we take something. You can build up an allergy to something. Rosacea has nothing to do with allergies. See a dermatologist for that. Who knows why you get hives. A dermatologist can help with that too. There are many reasons for hives, not just allergies.
