Is anyone suffering an outbreak of hives that just won't go away? I've had severe hives for over 3 weeks now and the itching is driving me insane. I've taken Piriton but that only gives me a couple of hours relief. Please HELP!
Hives! : Is anyone suffering an outbreak of... - Vasculitis UK
Hi I get hives and after trying every over the counter med went to the doctor. He give me a cream called Eumovate (clobetasone butyrate) Cream. It normal clears it up. If not it does stop the itching. But if it does not then I have on a couple occasions when they were really bad had a short high dose of steroids. Sometimes three days but mostly five. I know I lot of people worry about steroid but if you think you will go mad with the scratching then it becomes a blessing when it stops. Good luck.
Do you have vasculitis?? Are you sure it is hives not a rash due to vasculitis???
Pre diagnosis for vasculitis I switched from paracetamol to ibuprofen and immediately suffered an allergic reaction including hives. Have you changed medications at all? I hope you find the answer soon.
Coconut oil worked for me.
Have you been tested for urticarial vasculitis?Have you noticed what triggers hives? Cold or tight clothing? Prednisolone does help but it you stop taking it, it may come back again (in my case, I couldn't stop taking it). Organic Aloe Vera gel helps with itching but not permanently.
I get hives and yes the itching drives me mad, the only thing I find that clears it up is a cream on prescription , it’s a steroid one called betnovate. Hope that helps
yes I too recently had itchy spots which lasted weeks and has left scars. only cleared when I had my infusion of Rutiximab. I did however get a bit of relief using tea tree wipes.. Hope this helpsWageners
This could be a formofcascitis called Urticarial Vasculitis caused by an autoimmune response to the tiny capillaries in your skin It’s important you don’t just get dismissed as an allergy to something external
You do need further investigation as antihistamines don’t help this
