    Awful rash
    Thegreatoz posted:
    Right now my arms and legs are covered with hives after Eucerin for 3 days. I am usually not sensitive to lotions...I am 38 and this has never happened before. I am glad to find this is a common experience with the lotion.

    xrayshell1610 responded:I had hives in 2007 for 5 months, went to several Drs. finally my ddad said oh I remember a dr gave me Atrax (Hyroxyzine HCL 225mg) and they went away in 2 days. Well within 1 week mine were gone. I feel for you they are awful, I had all sizes eeverywhere. See if you can get your dr to write you a prescription for Hydroxyzine HCL 25 mg, 1 tablet every 6 to 12 hhours. (will make you sleepy). Thank goodness my dad remembered what he took, he now has Alzehemiers. Good luck to you. Oh benedryl made me worse. I posted this for someone else also, hope it helps.
