So, since November, I've been randomly breaking out in hives. It would normally happen in the middle of the night. At first I woke up with hives on my collar bones, on my chin, the side of my lip, on my eyelids, and on my stomach around my naval. It was weird because I didn't know the sign of it. I'm not allergic to any medication, any fabric, and many food. (some allergies to some foods, but nothing it'll cause hives over. Just a scratchy throat.)
This has been happening randomly since then, about 4-5 outbreaks now. I still don't know what's causing them. But, my question was, could you be able to get hives from continuous stress? And is there anything I can take or use to help make them go away? It's been over a week now, and the hives seem to have left red blotches from my eyelids to my thighs. They don't itch, but they are bruised and are kind of leaving flesh wounds in some places.

Sorry for the ramble, I'm just trying to get to the bottom of this situation. Can't exactly consult with a doctor because of the lack of insurance. (I've been to the hospital, and they don't seem to know either!)

We aren't doctor's so we can't give medical advice out. However, when I get hives, I take benedryl. Is there anything new you have came in contact with? Soap? Shampoo? Detergents? Creams? Hair styling? New food? Are you on any medication? A person can develop an allergy to a medication at any time, even if they are on it.
