Stop Hives Itching And Get On With Your Day


Hives and itching go hand and hand as your body reacts to some sort of allergy. Those swollen red spots will appear, and then the want to scratch will happen. But you need to try as hard as you can to put a stop to hives itching so your skin can get back to normal.

Ok, so you may end up scratching a bit as you wait for your antihistamine to work. Benadryl is a popular over-the-counter medication, but there are several alternatives that can help you put a stop to itchy hives too. Topical creams are also a good option and tend to go to work right away.

Often a cream can relieve the pain on contact, and usually help the itching quickly. Pills generally take from 20 to 30 minutes before you feel the complete affects. Natural hives remedies can also help relieve hives symptoms quickly and without all the side effects associated with normal medications.

If you’ve never had hives before, you should see a doctor to rule out any other conditions. Hives can be caused by a variety of things, some serious but most not. Just take care of the itching so it doesn’t drive you crazy, then give your doctor a call.

Hives can be caused by an allergic reaction, but an infection could also be to blame. One that is low grade, perhaps a sinus infection even, could be causing your hives. Your immune system could be over reacting to this infection, resulting in those terrible hives itching symptoms. When you see your doctor, he or she will run tests and hopefully determine the cause.

Sometimes, though, you never do find out what caused your hives. You may one day stumble upon an allergy from a food or airborne substance, but it really could be just about anything. The best piece of advice is to have a remedy on hand to stop swelling, itching and pain so you’re prepared if you have another outbreak.

    believe me or not I had hives since 1984-2000. Mine was cold triggered hives. I went to victoria falls in 2000 on a holiday and told my friend about this disease.He advised me ……hold your breath , to collect elephant poo as much as 2-5kg. All I needed to do was put a portion of about 500g or so in my bath tub then soak myself in it.I olnly did this for barely three weeks and didnt even finish 2 kilos I had collected. Since then, I moved to England which is even colder than africa and I have never had a single outbreak of hives.There should be a root or leaf in the elephant’s diet that treats hives
