It is nice to know that I am not the only one who goes through this daily. My hives started about 3 years ago. No doctor has ever been able to tell me what they are caused from. I take 4 anti histimes a day and 2 allergy pills... so im constantly tired... Its horrible to know that im 20 years old and all I want to do when I get off work is go home and sleep. Its miserable! My hives started occuring after I was pregnant and had a miscarriage when I was 17. They haven't stopped since. These past two weeks, Ive had them severe every single day. Going to start seeing a new doctor once again next week, hopefully he can figure out what they are caused from. The whole cycle is just depressing and annoying and I just dont know what to do anymore....

Hi,

I would suggest that you research salicylate allergy and low salicylate diet. There is a web site for chronic uticaria that has a low salicylate diet. You may find it helpful to try the diet.

You should see an allergist and ask about aspirin desensitization. Aspirin is salicytic acid which is derived from willow bark. There are numerous salicylates found in most fruits and vegetables.

Here is the link to thw International Chronic Uticaria Society's low salicylate diet.

Feel better and
God bless.
