Hives break out on hands, legs, hips, waist. Had taken treatment for Cellulitis and bee sting. What can be done?

Aboout 2-3 weeks ago, I was stung by two bees, both hands swelled up; I had pain like my hands were on fire. It went away within a day. Later that week, one of my hands swelled up like an orange. I went to Express Care clinic and they diagnosed Cellulitis and gave me steroid pac and antibiotic. Now, two weeks later, I m breaking out in hives on my hands, hips, waist , thighs. Is this related and what should I do?

It seems to be due to allergy to any of the drug you are taking. Thus stop all drugs.

If you are not taking any drug at present, it can be due to food taken or reaction to any other disease.

Blood test like TDLC, TEC & Stool test will be required.

You may require anti-histaminic and corticosteroids orally for few days.

Please consult your doctor, who prescribed you treatment for cellulitis.

With good wishes,
