Help for hives

So, after suffering through these stupid hives for 20 days, the Dermatologist had me try Allegra Zantac. I took one of each last night & today when I woke up - no red splotches after my shower & so far (it's 11:50) no itching! AND, I havne't taken any Benadryl yet today! YEA...so, if you get hives that nothing seems to help (had a week's worth of Prednisone and a Prednisone shot that did nothing for me) ask your Dr. for Allegra & go grab some Zantac! I go back in 2 weeks to see her again & then we'll figure out what to do. Hopefully I can stop the pills before then though! Who knows...I will just have to wait & see. Just happy to be itch free!
