    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Chronic Hives - DPU

    I've had DPU on and off for the last 20 years. Benadryl only helps because it puts me to sleep and I don't scratch. Allergy meds don't help. Clobetasol doesn't touch it. I recently started applying Kwan Loong Oil (a pain relieving aromatic oil) at the first sign of a hive, and it seems to relieve the itching enough to allow me to stop scratching and spreading the hives. I bought the oil on the internet. I would love it if this would work for others. Please let me know. Thanks.
