    Tip for hives
    Klynn639 posted:
    My daughter suffers with hives, they have never found out what causes her hives either. We thought since I was recently diagnosed that maybe it could be a symptom of MS. From reading here that seems questionable. She does how ever get relief fro hives with plantain, not the vegetable, but a herb from an herb store. It tastes terrible. But it works. Check it out!

    Thank You very much for posting this information. I was diagnosed with MS in 2002. But, I am sure that you may be aware that it sometimes takes years to get a real diagnosis.
    It is frustrating, Allthoug ,I did recently have a breakout of hives. I couldn't understand what could have caused such a thing.
    I did some research and after reading your post, I came up with a type of Plantain that works for me. Having MS I have to take a lot of meds. But, I do eat well and take suppliments. I found that Metamucil has plantain husks in the ingredient. I mix it with my oj. I have been good ever since.. Thanks
