I had major surgery on thursday and before that I broke out in really bad hives everywhere. Will the hives go away soon? also will using the anti-microbial soap from my surgery help them go away?
Stress does not cause hive, allergies do. Was your medication changed? you should report your hives to your doctor because you may be having an allergic reaction to one of your meds. If not meds, what about food, laundry detergent, perfume, or anything else that you eat or put on your skin. Benedryl can help with the reaction but you should find out what is causing it because some allergies can become life threatening.
