Hi everyone,
I woke up this morning COVERED head to toe with hives. They are SOOO itchy. Benadryl and Zyrtec haven't helped at ALL!

Anyone ever heard of this?

I've had Lyme and Babesia for at least 3 years, and I am mostly well. I've been treated with a ton of stuff. I started a new herb a week ago... could that be it? Or is it a Lyme/Babesia flare? Or...

I know that steroids are a no-no. Do I have any other options??? I can't take it!

ER.!! Got to get to the ER If it is head to toe and that bad!! It is dangerous and could close up your throat and affect breathing.

What abx are you on if any?
Sulfa Antibiotics or Penacillins can do this to you.
You did not mention any antibiotics your on

Its most likely a reaction to something ..

Good Luck..
Let us know how you are!

After you go to the ER!!! If you need relief for the hives...try a baking soda bath. Not too hot because it will just make you itchier. It relieves it for a short while sometimes.
Good luck and i hope you are ok!!!!
Let us know for sure!
