Hate to say I told you so....*

I am covered in hives!  I had my doctor's appointment, and she gave me a referral to an allergist, so now I just have to wait for an appointment.  She said it should be in the next 2-3 weeks at the latest.  Today my hives were really bad!  The past few days I've just had them around night time, but today I had them when I woke up (after a terrible night of sleep!) and they didn't really go away.  They got a little bit better by the time I got to the doctors, but now they're just getting worse.  I had a bath with oatmeal, took some benadryl & claritin, and they're just not going away.  At least the itch is finally gone... but now I have them all around my eyes and one on my lip.  I feel (and look!) like I got punched in the mouth, haha.  

Do any of you guys have tips on how to deal with hives?  I'm going to stay away from cheese (AHHHHHHHHH.) for the next little while & hopefully that will help... and I'm trying to chug as much water as I can to clear whatever out of my system.  It's just so frustrating!  I have no idea what I'm allergic to... I haven't been using new soap, perfume,  detergent, lotion, anything... no new foods... I haven't even had the same meal any of the days... the only thing in common is that I've drank water, ha!  That's not it.  Give me some tips!  What to eat/drink/stay away from... what to do... they're driving me crazy! 

*Ha, I had to!!

  4. I got really bad hives once when I was really stressed out. I don't get stressed out often, but we got a mouse in our house right when company was coming (I've never had one).....I FREAKED OUT and along came hives. Went to the doctor and he just suggested Benedryl. Are you stressed about something maybe?? I haven't had them again...but YES...they are awful. So sorry. Hope you feel better!!

  6. I had hives and had to go to the emergency room. It was HORRIBLE! Don't take hot showers, it makes them worse. They prescribed me prednisone, it helped A LOT! Good luck :(

  7. Sometimes it's a "new" Formula for an old product. I had this recently with Tide. So I started making my own soap.
