Hello, my name is Rodger and I am 19 years old. I too have recently started to suffer from hives, although I have not been to the doctor to have it properly diagnosed (No health insurance) from my research around forums and other sites i strongly believe that I am suffering from chronic hives. This started for me back in the middle of February pf this year. It came on slow, just a few itchy bumps I thought nothing of, as time went on they progressively got worse. I have tried countless medicines mainly antihistamines, only few provide little relief and I have even tried other remedies such as changing diet and life style..no avail. I feel as though all of my options have been exhausted. I am getting more and more frustrated, exhausted and embarrassed as time goes on. I have no where else to turn. The reason me posting here is because after reading a lot of your post and seeing some suffers of hives for 20+ years I want to know if this will ever clear up? I use to get random hand, feet, ankle, knee, and lip swelling but that hasn't happened for a very long time. My hives also seem to clear up around noon and appear again around 6pm, are these signs that my hives may be going away for good? Or will this actually end up getting the best of me?
