In Jan of this year my daughter (15) started getting hives. We took her to our family Dr and they prescribed a few things. Had to rush her to the ER and they had to give 2 shots of epinephrine along with benadryl and steroids. The hives came back the next day. Since then we have seen an allergist who has had her on Prednisone, Zyrtec, Singular, Zantac and Benadryl (when needed). All hives go away until she is out of Prednisone. Then they are back full force it's only been 3 months that she has had these but our Dr immediately told us about Xolair. She had her first two injections yesterday but woke up with hives everywhere today. Is this normal? She is going to prom in 2 weeks and refuses to go if she looks like a monster. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
