I have finally recovered from hives after more than 1 year of struggle. My hives were accompanied with high body temoerature, reddening in one ear, stinging sensation felt after urination, anal itching, occasional itch on palms n feet, extreme sensitivity to certain types of soaps.
After a year of trying to self heal by exercise and going on a detox diet, I didn't recover and I didn't want to depend on antihistamine drugs , i decided to try Tcm (Traditional Chinese Medicine). 3 weeks into the Tcm meds, I was free from hives but in the 4th week , I find that it's losing its effectiveness. Although I no longer get full attack of hives at night, my skin is still abit sensitive and may get 1 or 2 hives around my bra strap when I feel hot and eczema on legs. My urine still stings a little. Then I started drinking lime juice with warm water every morning and I started seeing improvement. about
2 weeks later, I started taking fish oil with Vit D by kordel's, Vit C and probiotics to build up my immunity . It's been one week into taking these supplements complementing the lime water and I am so happy that the stinging in urine is gone. I don't get hives or skin sensitivity anymore too!
In summary, regular bowel movement (aided by Tcm meds), drinking lime warm water every morning and taking the supplements to build my immunity cured me.
Note: Tcm med also required me to avoid taking heaty and allergic causing foods , canned, processed, seafood, liquor , nuts, candy and dairy foods . My diet was restricted to rice, fish pork, veg n fruits which I could only adhere to 70% of it as I didn't want to stress myself too much over such a restricted diet.
