1304960577 35 Duration and treatment of hives?

Two nights ago, the tops of my feet broke out with hives. By yesterday morning, they were all over my body. I have not eaten anything out of the ordinary, nor have I changed any soaps or detergents. I am one huge, miserable itch from head to toe. Besides taking Benadryl and Zyrtec, is there anything I can do to treat it? also, how long does a typical case of hives last?

Drink lots of orange tea and keep on taking the medication. In about less than two weeks they will be gone.

Two years ago I broke out with a bad case of hives on my hands,after a week I was still breaking out in hives.I got an appt. with my family doctor and he gave me Benadryl for the itching and a Medrol dose pack (steroids).After taking the Medrol I was still getting hives so he gave me a referral to an allergy specialist.Turns out I am allergic to Mt.Cedar,Ragweed,dust mites,mold,squash,and formaldehyde(some dyes in new clothes,bedspreads,etc. contain formaldehyde).he arranged for me to get allergy shots.I'm going on my 2nd year now and I have one more year to go.
