sudden onset and I was covered head to toe--totally taken by surprise, as the body called out to me. I sarted reserching rashes in the deep of the night --when anxiety needed outlet and there was no way I could face emergency calls for help or handle a doctors interview in a cold room....I realsied it must be hives after much conisderation and now the docs and pharmacists needed to only confirm it to dole out the appropriate industry chemicals....I read that apparently 1 in 25 adults experience urticaria in their lifetime. That means 1 in 25 of us experience some level of extremity beyond the bounds of the body once in a lifetime-- this is when hives becomes the problem and then is at the same time the body's call for help, as the key solution to that problem. As histamnes are normally active in a good way when not actually turning into ongoing acutre or chronic hives. Apparently the cause, is most often not found. Anyway since the antihistamine medicine gave me an altered experience I did not wish to repeat I have taken only one tablet and have run the rollercoaster gamut of this wee ride my body is taking me on, hands free, like as in unsupported by mechanisms that reduce pain but block the process. Some people may like the altered experience but for me its too chemical and also it may be that not everyone would feel this from these tablets as its because I am a sensitive that I get these free side effects anyway.... I learned not to take pharma for this reason as a kid. But hey, people were advising me and I was turning into 'Elephant Woman' so I gave it a try. I now have a full pack bar 1 tablet of hayfever remedy anyone can have if they want. Anyways -- some of the time to distract myself I have been looking up stories about this thing urticaria... hives... (being diselxic I keep getting confused why am I reading about bees ( I do keep bees lol)..and found millions--of stories--online, many I didnt connect with but did feel and identify with the re-occuring theme : 'what is this? I dont know what triggers this, or what works, and help, and I am trying this and that and here is the result and so on.' That infomrs a lot oabout this thing hives-- the body is like saying : unknown unknown unknown quantity--- alert alert alert-- and body needsd help body needs help.... instead we mainly supress the call medicinally--One story I did connnect with--as relating to my personal case -- and that one I paste below... There must be a story for every 1 in 25 adults out there. My conclusion is if you follow your story, or the stories that enlighten your stories-- you can find the message your body is throwing at you. I have always done this anytime I have experienced an illness-- I think this is my healer nature, but as I had stepped out of that active way for a while now--dues to not being in best of health for a while... I'd forgotten, but am reminded of it--now, -- so... and I see that we each in a million stories may find one or three stories that help US. Some clear descriptions of actual characteristics of our disease can also help us....stories can enlighten and bring us close to the remedy and cear descriptions can elucidate for us what need the body is expressing ---I learned there are different types of urticaria and I had to google a lot to find that. I discovered by that that mine is ---physical hives -- and this made me reflect ... and then understand my story better...After a while things began to piece together... and there is a personal depth to ones own story that one can find, one's personal key out.... and with that -- the whole thing began to lighten, and the body started to allow healing to occur....the story is deep for each, so I wont go into mine here, but here is one story I found online-- where WATER WATER WATER :) as a remedy is confirmed-- and a story that I connected with directly, as if I was there, or was her in the reading of it, when reading, by Liz. ( Thanks Liz, and Hugs)

My journey with hives was painful both physically and mentally. I went to bed one night last April feeling itchy all over and I woke up the next morning with hives covering my body from my neck to my toes. At the time I was going through an extremely stressful and unpleasant move. I had no idea my stress could manifest itself into something so crazy so I had to believe I was allergic to something. I took everything and anything I could buy over the counter - nothing worked. I used every cream I could get my hands on - nothing worked for more than 5 minutes. I went to the ER several times leaving with steroids or anti anxiety med or an allergy medication of some sort. Every time the script ran out, the hives were back and worse than ever. I was literally on the edge all the time, I cried every night before going to sleep. I'd wake up in such pain due to swelling, I was at the end of my rope. This was still going on after even after my stress had faded. This was now the only stress in my life. And it was killing my spirit. I felt out of control. One day I read an article online that suggested drinking 60-80 oz of water per day would help relieve the hives. For a week I downed 80 oz per day religiously. The first night, maybe a gallon. I would try anything at that point. The next morning, my skin was clear. I have been doing this since august. If I drink at least a 20oz bottle of water, it keeps them away. If I am dehydrated (sometimes I work long shifts as a server and don't have time to stop) I'll find myself getting itchy. I drink a bottle of water and it goes away. I'm not claiming to have the cure but I'm telling you what helped me if it helps anyone else. Because my life for those months was absolute hell. I thought I was going to be tortured for the rest of my life. And I have my life back. Just give it a try. You have nothing to lose... but your hives.

If you suffer from chronic hives. You should really read this. I'm not promoting, endorsing or selling anything. No medication. Lesson your outbreaks naturally.

I've suffered from chronic hives or urticaria ever since I could remember. Now I life my life 95% free of hives.

I'm an Asian male 41 years old. I've had massive attacks or outbreaks at least 3-4 times a year and smaller manageable ones 7-10 times. Yes, I was like you and took prednasone and every other antihistamine out there. (Only one that truly worked for me was benadryl)

Unlike like other people the hives appeared on areas of my body I couldn't cover up such as my face!

During my teenager years the internet was just in its infancy stages there were no blogs or online information, support group to share ideas and to get advice. All the allergologist did was conduct a allergy test on me and suggest I monitor what I ate. THIS PISSED ME OFF AS NOT ONE allergologist out of 15 had anything else new to suggest and I felt that no one could help me. They just got paid for doing the test and in this field is very subjective and not proven. There was no one correct solution to cure my hives. I had to remember that these doctors are only guided by traditional science and proven scientific methods. Its against their practice to suggest any other alternative medication. The only advise I got was to take benadryl on a nightly basis and stay away from histamine triggering foods.

I turned to Chinese herbs and that didn't work either.

Here's what did - This is what helped me keep my hives in check.

1. Stay away from histamine producing or triggering foods. Shrimp, crabs, lobsters, Strawberries, Nuts, Bone marrow and limit your intake of SALT, artificial ingredients and chemicals (flavors) Stay away from any processed food! Hotdogs, luncheon meat, packaged or canned foods.

2. Since 70% of your immune system has to do with your large intestine, small intestine and colon, stomach areas. You need to constantly keep them clean. (Clean you pipes) The cells which fight off and protect your immune system need to be healthy and strong this means eating right - green leafy vegetables.

3. Detox now and start changing your diet and don't let stress get the best of you. Chew your food well.

4. Exercise and sweat as much as you can! Go to a sauna everyday for 30 mins. limit your sodium intake as this prevents you from sweating. You should aim to lose 2-3 lbs of body water everyday and re-hydrate with 3 bottles of water. Do this on a 5-6 times a week. Don't drink tap water.

I read posting from a person who had a similar case of hives like myself. He suggested changing the water in your body as much as possible as not much studies done on this topic and its relationship to histamine. 75% of your body is water and if you don't sweat it out or urinate it out of your body then it remains stagment. Focus on trying to replace your body's water as much as possible and keep your colon, intestines clean as often as possible.

I've been following these simple rules for 3 years now and don't have any major outbreaks. Although I still get small hives occasionally, I'd say I'm 90% relieved of my hives and I'm completely off medication.

My diet is 60% green vegetables and fruits, 30% meat (beef and chicken only) 10% pizza, hamburgers, NO FAST FOOD, NO PROCESSED MEAT.

Every morning when I wake up, I eat half a small sized orange, or grapefruit and wait an hour before I drink or eat anything else. This is a great cleanse.

I take my vitamins and drink a very thick shake with high amounts of kayle, spinach, carrots, spinach, banana, green apple, pineapple, and little ginger. Blended using my vitamix.

After meals try to drink hot water with slice of lemon. This serves as a detox as well.

Follow this diet and lifestyle and hopefully it works for you as change starts within.

Good Luck!
