I have had hives everyday of my life aside from 2 years. They went away in my early 20s and came back the day after my gall bladder was removed. It’s nice to know theres other people out there who know the struggle of trying to explain to people how a wrinkle in my pillow gave me hives or the vibration from the lawnmower or my own sweat or nothing at all gave me hives. This week has been exceptionally bad which is what brought me to find this group. This is a picture from yesterday after taking 5 days of prednisone zyrtec and hydroxyzine and ranitidine. This is only my leg too I had them all over

Lisa Draghi Bonacasa Hi welcome to the Group I felt the same way as you I was relieved to see that I wasn’t the only one that had this not that I wish this upon anyone. Have to ask does all that medication that you’re taking help because I know it never did a thing for me. I have also heard about xolair haven’t taken it. Been reading up on it and I know it was only improved in May 2014 for our condition and there are a lot of side effects so a little leery on taking it but that’s just me other people of said it’s a miracle drug. Hope you find something that works for u
Luke Towne No in the end none of it works for me but everyone keeps mentioning xolair so I’m going to ask for that and hope for the best
Lisa Draghi Bonacasa I been hearing the same about it think I may talk to my allergist more about it
Julia Fontera I have no side effects at all but i did its an amazing drug life changing give your life back but i was at my last rope couldnt take it anymore
Lisa Springett Lol woke up.this morning to a big frost switched on heating but waiting for house to warm up or I will be covered in hives in an hour. Should I be late for work ??
Harvey Fedyk Welcome to the group. I feel your agony. Xolair is a good option. I have been on Xolair for 10 month but I still get significant breakouts when I am stressful situations.. So it not a true silver bullet for me.
