Synthbent75, first of all I would like to welcome you to HealingWell. Fortunately, in all the years I have suffered from allergies, I have never had to deal with hives. Just from reading other posts, I think Jeannie's suggestion of trying Benadryl is a good one and it is over the counter. If that doesn't help, I would definitely get in to see an allergist.
Whenever I hear members describe their symptoms of hives, it makes me want to go crazy just thinking about it. You must be miserable. Please keep us posted.
