Charity HI! And a very warm welcome to you here at HW. I don't have hives so I really can't give much advice but I really wanted to welcome you so here I am...Possibly the hives are something that anxiety is causing???? I really don't know, but if this is the case maybe anti-dep meds can help you (ask the good doctor).
You sound like a wonderful, caring parent and it must be painful to miss out on things with your son. I sincerely hope that things improve and that you keep us posted on your journey here. xxx Welcome again xx
I'd like to extend a warm welcome to you on your first visit to Healing Well! To help you get the most out of the A & P Forum please take the time to browse our threads as you may find some great information posted by other members.
I am so sorry you have chronic hives. I have heard of patients on Tricyclic antidepressants. Examples include amitriptyline, nortriptyline and doxepin. These medications have antihistamine properties and can help relieve itching. I wish I had more input for you but I am here to support you along with all the members of A & P.
I understand your frustration and anxiety as this condition is keeping you from playing with your child but keep talking to us. I see you found some members who do have the same condition. That is great to find support.
Hugs to youKItt
Welcome to HealingWell and I am so sorry your Sister and you have the same affliction. I am sure you have read many articles and are very familiar with the condition.
We also have a forum on Allergies. You may want to post in that forum also as I am sure this is a topic that has come up there.
