What causes hives all over the body?
Remedy for hives
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr. kakkar (Dermatologist and Venerelogist).
I have noted your concern.
I would suggest Inj Dexamethasone 2ml(8mg), IM or IV. It is longer acting as compared to oral prednisolone.
In addition I suggest oral antihistamines e.g either cetrizine 10mg or loratadine 10mg once daily for a few days..
Topically he may use a soothing lotion e.g calamine lotion.
