I discovered the hives I had every single day for the last 4 months were due to the HRT patch. I've had no hives at all for almost a week now but every day my face still feels itchy and slightly swollen/puffy.

I have no idea why? Surely I couldn't be allergic to something else?

Does my body need more time to recover?

I'm tempted to visit the doctor again but they were no help at all with the hives anyway.

Your body may still need more time to mend - make sure you drink lots of water to help flush the residual histamine and HRT hormones out of your body. If you notice any increase in symptoms, then it could be a new allergy and you probably should go see an Allergist about it.

I hope this helps - good luck,
