4 days ago now, I went to see 3 different doctors, the third one finally told me i had hives (utircaria) it seems to be getting worse, my whole body is now covered including swelling of the lips and eyes. they have given me an antihistamine called phenergan but it doesnt seem to be helping. What can i do? its driving me insane. I cant sleep and havea 10 month old baby to look after. I really need to know whats wrong and how i can over come this.
There are so many causes of hives. you might want to switch to an over the counter medication call Benadryl. I have never used Phenergan for hives. Drink loads of water. Cut down your stress level. Soak in warm bathe, not hot, no soap. you can get hives from sitting out in the sun, Even perfume will do it. good luck. if it still persist see your doctor…Nursing Degree
I went through the same thing as Jack. I refuse to believe it was my laundry detergent , but suprisingly it was. I have been using the same laundry deteregent for 5 years how come all of the sudden I become allergic to it. Well as soon as I changed my detergent my hives vanished.
continue to take your meds as prescribed, treat the pain with advil or tylenol (safe for breastfeeding), keep a food diary. follow up with your allergist & dermatologist. Phenergan is NOT an antihistamine.
