Remedy for hives
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service. I have viewed the image and gone through the query.
I suggest you to take an oral antihistamine e.g Cetrizine 10mg tablet or Loratadine 10mg tablet once a day for a few days. In addition I suggest you to use a soothing lotion e.g calamine lotion.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance.
Prednisolone is also a treatment option for acute severe Hives. However, you need to take 40- 60mg of prednisolone daily, for a week. In addition, you may also take an oral antihistamine e.g Cetrizine 10mg tablet in evening for 7-10 days. Cetrizine is available OTC. Oral antihistamines are first line treatment option for Hives.
