I have had hives since August 17th. My first Dr.

I have had hives since August 17th. My first Dr. Visit I got a allergy shot and steroids prescription that only helped for 3 days. Next visit I was told to go off my Escitalopram and replaced it with Claritin and Buspirone HCL. It made them worse and my face swell. Yesterday I had to stop taking the Buspirone HCL. By body is covered today and I'm miserable. What can I try next?

My son had surgery for a deviated septum on Aug. 4th, 2010. He had an allergic reaction to dilaudid and morphine (hives). Since his surgery he has developed hypertension and is only 17 years old. I can think of nothing else to cause this other than one or both of the drugs he was given. Could this be the likely cause?

I have developed hives. They have been with me since August of 2013. Initially I thought it was stress, however after all or most stress factors were gone, I still had the hives. I went to dermatologist she ran some test which showed nothing that would be causing them, then she sent me to an allergist. He did the environmental prick test which showed up nothing abrasive and he also did additional blood work. Nothing. I have relief about 3 to 4 days a month where the itching is at a lower level other wise I itch everyday. The hives are mainly on my limbs, although I do have them on my abdomen at times. It takes a good while for them to completely go away. Help!

My daughter-in-law was diagnosed with Celiac in December. She has been diagnosed with MS since August 2008. She is having major problems with hives and swelling. Her face swells up almost every day. Today, she woke up with her eyes almost swollen shut. She is sticking very strictly to her gluten free diet. She has been allergy tested for common food allergies and had no significant reactions. They hives and swelling have been getting worse lately and started in the summer 2010. We are at a loss. What are your thoughts?
