Hi and Welcome to HealingWell, HelloKitty22!!
I am so sorry to hear about your daughter and her trouble with these hives! I've suffered through these myself since I was younger according to what I was told from my Mom. I also had an incident several years ago, when I had an allergic reaction to a medication and ended up with hives everywhere including my mouth ears, etc. It's very scary and very itchy! I even started swelling in my arm and hand - it looked as if I had a broken arm. I was given steroids (Prednisone) to reduce the inflammation and benedryl to help counteract the allergen causing it. It worked! There are so many different things that could be causing this reaction and by bringing her to a Dr. that does Allergy Testing, you may indeed find out what is causing this! There are certain medications that they can give her for allergies as well, but due to her young age, they may not want to do as much testing on her.
The following is a site that I thought may help you a little...
Good luck and best wishes to both you and your daughter and I do hope that you find another Dr. for her - perhaps an allergist? Please let me know how she does!!
