Tablet Cetrizine or tablet chlorpheniramine maleate

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
Hives are an allergic reaction which are treated with antihistaminics.
You can take tablet Cetrizine 10 mg twice daily or tablet Chlorpheniramine maleate 4 mg twice daily for 7-10 days.
This should resolve them.
