However, recently i have discovered tht it is actually the free radicals thats playing havoc on my system...May i started smoking too much 2 years back.. Recently,I bought keihls cream which is high on argon fruit extract and i got immediate relief upon application.

Hi hives all ovet the body can be acute urticaria
It is due to allergens like food allergens.dyes and insect bites etc.rule out this first before treatment.
Then treat the condition with atarax 25 mg at night alaspan in the morning and application of calamine lotion on all the lesion s present.
Antioxidant should be taken only once to prevent free radicals .more than one can be over dose
