Therapies range from cool compresses to relieve itching to prescription antihistamines and other drugs, such as anti-inflammatory medications and medications that may modify your immune system.

Angioedema - swelling of tissue beneath the surface of the skin - can be mistaken for or associated with hives.

still i get random hives, whether they show up or i just itch my skin. others just start as open bump the size of a pea, then that gets really itchy. One thing I have tried is taking One Zyrtec in the morning, One Claritin Hives ( its harder to find then regular Claritin but works way better!! I have a rash, hives, fever and get swollen in my joints and face.Histamine is a chemical that is responsible for many of the signs and symptoms of allergic reactions, for example, swelling of the lining of the nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes.Histamine is released from histamine-storing cells (mast cells) and then attaches to other cells that have receptors for histamine.i then scratch and scratch because i cant stand it and i get this splotchy ameba looking thing that can get as big as a half dollar, or a large inflamed lump. I find it at Longs Drugs) and then late at late if I have issues I take another Zyrtec, but usually if I follow my diet I dont have too. then spreads all over, All from not taking Zyrtec(or the generic version Cetirizine Hydrochloride) after using it for over six months.I have a doctor & I will be just paying the co-payment for him to tell me stop taking it. Its a catch 22 situation for me...there is no other allergy meds that stops my nose n eyes watering, some can put up with it but I work in cosmetics and I have to always look my best...

Antihistamines like Zyrtec and Claritin are designed to calm the histamine reaction your body has when it’s exposed to an allergen.
