I have hypothyroid for 17 years, fibro myalgia for 7. This past Oct went to GP for regular blood text, was told my level was down and needed to up my dose of medicine. That was fine. Started taking 200 mg, in November before was at 150 mg. By the second week in December I started getting hives. Was put on prednisone pack. Nothing happened and continued with the hives. January had regular appointment with specialist for fibro myalgia and showed her the hives since it was six weeks since last blood work she did another thyroid reading was down lower. Also suggested for me to juice and Contacted my GP. she increased my meds. To 112 mg two a day.still hives and another prednisone pack. Still no results. Come back in April. Returned in April with hives. GO suggest allergy test to be done. Test come back and have allergies to cat and dog, milk, wheat, dairy foods, dust, dust mites, so I basically only eat chicken and turkey, fruits and vegetables. But still hives. Went back to GP in June for another blood text and thyroid is lower again. Now started on 300 mg a day. What in my body can be causing the hives and what can I do to get rid of them. Please help.

I am a 63 year old male in general good health. I have been suffering from increasing dabilitating fatique combined with ear ringing, rhinitis, throat congestion and sensitive gums now for two years. I took a allergy scratch test with negative results last year. Forty years ago I was treated with allergy shots for I beleive trichophyton with relief from the symptoms. I asked the allergy MD about this and he said he does not test for this because everyone reacts to a trichophyton scratch test. Are my symtoms possibly due to a severe sensitivity to trichophyton and are their any therapies?

My daughter was treated with hives last night having had a shot of predizilone and benadryl. She returned home no problem and slept great. At about 5 a.m. she woke up very irate saying she was itchy and we discovered that the skin reacting had returned and it was all over the body. What should I do to ensure that this rash does not return or should we keep treating it with benadryl? Should we take her back to urgent care for an allergy test?
