I have hives all over my body. I've been know to get them when stressed and I have been stressed. The problem is I cannot take Benadryl b/c I am having a special asthma test on Tuesday and I cannot have antihistamines starting today. Anyone have any suggestions? I think I am going to scratch my skin raw. I've had them since yesterday - woke up during the night with them. I am completely miserable.

have you ever heard of Aveeno? when i got any kind of rash my mom bought this powder thats made up of oatmeal you put it in the bath and just soak it up it relieves itching and burning and then you could use the cream too as long as there is no antihistamines in it im not too sure about the cream but the bath Aveeno powder is sold at cvs and stores like that it worked wonders for me

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, and forget about the ones who don't and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance take it, if it changes your life let it. Nobody said it was going to be easy they just promised it would be worth it.
