Yes, I've gotten flare-ups of hives and/or angioedema many times! Sometimes I have just hives, sometimes just angioedema, sometimes both going on at the same time. My hives don't seem to target any one particular area as they occur just about anywhere on me. However, since my spine surgery, I do get hives on and off over my surgical site, which is odd. I also get hives over that area when I have something going on in my low back there, like disk herniation. I actually hadn't had angioedema for a while up until 2 days ago. Suddenly it occured in my upper right lip but then disappeared by the end of the day. But I've had it so bad sometimes over my eyes that I can hardly see from the swelling. It usually happens either over my eyes, somewhere in/around my lips, and even along my jawline. I take high-doses of liquid benadryl when this happens and it usually calms it down a lot, as I do not have a stock of prednisone.
It had no effect at all for me. Has it helped you?
