My three year old has hives all over his body.

My three year old has hives all over his body. We noticed it about 2 hours ago. We have no idea if it’s food or environmental. No known allergies. He’s sleeping now. Should I have concern about anaphylaxis? Or would that have happened by now? Can I let him sleep in peace?

I am 39 years old. Healthy. Developed uncontrollable hives for the past four weeks. I have been to my PCP twice and a dermatologist. I have taken an extensive high dose of oral prednisone that relieved hives for a few days but now they are back with a vengeance. I have used Benadryl, Pepcid, Allegra, Claritin, doxepin and hydroxyz, along with prescription creams. Nothing is working. The hives are now all over my body and I am starting to bruise in several areas of my body. I don t know what to do. My mom had hoshimotos and thyroid cancer. That is all for family health related issues.

I have had shingles outbreaks 1-2 times a year since 1976. I am now 65 years old and otherwise am in good health. I broke out with shingles blisters on 7/3 on my right shoulder, inside my nose and on my left upper buttock. I also had flu-like symptoms - fatigue and body aches, etc. I took 10 days of 800 mg daily of acyclovir, ending the treatment on 7/12. Today, I have another outbreak on my tailbone and feel generally ill all over - extreme fatigue, headache, body aches. I have another prescription of acyclovir that I began taking today, but I have never had back-to-back shingles outbreaks before. Just wondering if I should keep the same medication dosage and take another round of it for 10 days.

I am a 40 year old woman who has been suffering with hives for over two years. I began with my family physician and he prescribed antidepressants (lexapro and zoloft) those did not work, so I bagan seeing a dermatologist for the past year. They have had me on allergy medications (benadryl, doxipin, allergra, and zyrtec), now Thye have me on methotrexate, folic acid and just recently added prednizone. I am having a full blown flare right now, they are covering my entire body and am at wits end with these things. Is there anything or anyone you can suggest me try to rid myself of these hives... Thank you
