I think my hives are from parasites.
I have had horrific hives for the last year and I posted a few weeks ago that I had gotten a parasite test that came back positive for a large amount of the parasite blastocystis hominis. I gave myself an intense natural parasite detox including a three day celery juice cleanse along with every supplement parasites hate. I have only had two single hives pop up in the last two weeks and that was because I had backed off on my anti-parasite supplements the day before.
I am currently having a broader spectrum parasite test done now to see what else is going on. I am still having to take the anti-parasite natural supplements every day or my skin starts crawling. Im currently seeing a gastroenterologist that treats parasites because I may need a few rounds of prescribed parasite meds.To think that all my hive suffering could have been from parasites. Either way, I have been hive free for two weeks so I’m doing something right.
Was this a stool test?
Rachel Weinberg yes
My goodness! This must me scary! How do you get these parasites in you?
Each parasite has a different means of entering the body
Each species I mean
What supplements? I’m having success with that as well.
I would love to know what you used as well!
Black seed oil. And the BALI diet as closely as possible. Also my vitamin D was low and my thyroid.
Kelli Herbster not black-seed oil capsules, actual oil.

There is info out there now that says fasting or intermittent fasting can re-set our immune systems! Wouldn’t that be cool if it worked.
That is awesome!
It’s crazy that you posted this because I’ve suspected blasto since my hives started. But I’m breastfeeding and so I can’t really go crazy with the antiparasitics.
Jessie Grinnan Some parasites can move through breast milk into the baby…
Id get tested
I tested positive and was treated for HPylori, a common Hiver issue but I wonder about broader issues like this, when I dive back into seeing Drs again, I will chase this down. Thank you for sharing!
Liz King did your hives clear up after treatment?
In short, no….. but….
I think it took many years to get this sick and the causes are multifaceted or like onion layers. Stress, illnesses, chemicals, pollution, deficiencies etc. I have made many changes to my lifestyle over ten years in an effort to get healthier. I have to take 50-125mg of Atarax daily along with other antihistamines but I do believe I’m getting healthier and ultimately, I want to be hive free without medicine.
Everyone has parasites, our immune system normally keeps them in check and we live a symbiotic life. When the immune system is struggling or really suppressed is when some parasites will take advantage and cause issues. I’m happy you’ve been able to treat for them! They kind of scare me lol but I know I’ll be needing to deal with them soon. One step at a time 🙂
Jen Foglia Following please post how things go after the round of prescribed anti parasitic goes for you!
My sons dermatologist said treat the parasite and the hives will go. Well 5 years on Parasite treated gone and still hives. After telling her she said they would be gone she said I didn’t say that!😫
Food grade diatomaceous earth and probiotics. Put my son on this after 2 years of hives he was 16 and hives gone after about 2 weeks. Definitely parasites, or yeast over growth, or leaky gut. After 3 specialist docs i did all research and did myself they would have still had him living on antihistamines.
Ericka King, how did you use this?
Kelli Herbster buy it at your local health store or online. Start with half teaspoon in some juice water or anything after a week take a teaspoon. Take until you think you don’t need anymore. Lots of articles you can google on food grade diatomaceous earth and benefits. My son test negative for parasites yet once took this we then knew he had them!!
Ericka King what is the exact name of this probiotic? Does mothers market have it? Or online?
Julia Koranyi i bought this one in my town because its only once a day, had good reviews and is hypoallergenic. You can buy online.
No photo description available.
Ericka King thank you so much!! I’m desperate will try this!!
Take the food grade diatomaceous earth, probiotics and give your self a month to see if changing. If its your gut, yeast, or parasites it will work but there are many autoimmune etc that can cause chronic urticaria but leaky gut and parasites are a big one!

Following- allergist mentioned potential parasitic cause
The problem with this horrible disease is thinking the last thing you took before you went into remission was the cure.
I think you are onto something. I have a history of toxoplasmosis infections.
