I have used samples of Xyzal and it works. Anything i eat may trigger it. I can eat it one time and nothing happens, then the next time it will. I took Allegra, but not consistenly. It is now OTC. I was told by the pharmacy to try Zyrtec. I hope it works, since they say Xyzal is basically Zyrtec. Can anyone help me?
Do you have any idea what is causing this allergic reaction?
You need to take an antihistamine tablet - ask your pharmacist for more advice.
I would try something like Benadryl. I would also advise you to see an allergist. You need to find out exactly what your allergic to. I would think your doctor will want to prescribe you an epi pen. It's dangerous to keep eating things that you are allergic to. Even if they don't always bother you. Good Luck -Alem
If this is coming from something you are eating you desparately need to be tested for allergies. A blood sample will be tested for foods & all other things. I am allergic to milk proteins, & any corn products. What a deal that is! There is corn syrup or corn starch or whey or caseinate in everything on the market! Good luck & get an epi pen as previously advised. I carry mine always. Oh, & I forgot the strawberries, chocolate & on & on &on... Good luck..
I have had chronic hives periodically since I was 10. Now, I am 25 and I have started breaking out damn chronic hives again for 3 months.. I have tried pretty much everything over last 15 years.. All I can say, for now xyzal seems to be the best one. Zyrtec does not work very well for me anymore. I have been using Xyzal over the last 3 months. But, it does not mean that Zyrtec is not gonna work for you. Give it a try for a week and see the difference. If it gets worse, switch back to Xyzal. I usually get cortisone shots when I get angio-edema (swollen lips, closed eyes, internal breakouts, etc..)
