Posted on Tue, 14 Jul 2020
Question: I woke up this morning with some swelling and intense itchiness on the left side of my body, palms, elbow area, hip area, side of face, sole of foot, mainly. I have had issues with pressure hives in the past but it's not been one sided. Is this likely a recurrence? I did mainly sleep on my back/left side.

Brief Answer:
This is pressure urticaria, antihistaminic and calamine lotion

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to ask a doctor service
I have gone through your query and these are symptoms of pressure urticaria.
You had hives on left side of your body because you slept on left side and as a result of continuous pressure you developed hives.
I would recommend you to take antihistaminic like tablet cetrizine 10 mg twice daily for few days and apply calamine lotion on the affected area twice daily.
Regards
