Here is my best hives remedy. I suffered a lot but now my hives are 90\\% gone.
Tepid Oatmeal Soak
Oatmeal has long been known for its anti-itch properties, according to the Journal of Drug and Dermatology. When you soak in an oatmeal bath, the sugars in the oatmeal are released and produce a gelatinous layer on your skin. This help to soothe, reduce redness and ease inflammation.
Turn 2 cups of oatmeal into a powder either by grinding using a pestle and mortar, or blasting in a food processor.
Alternatively, put the oatmeal into a sock or other porous container (this makes cleaning up easier, but you may have to soak the oatmeal for longer).
Take the oatmeal and pour into a tepid bath.
Stay in the bath for at least 20 minutes (the longer, the better) to get the full effect of the oatmeal.
Alternatively, prepare the bath in advance and let the oats soak for an hour. Then top up the bath with tepid water and enter. This way you can stay in the bath for less time as the oats have released their properties into the water.
Once you have finished, avoid rubbing yourself dry with a towel. Either air dry or gently pat yourself dry with a towel.
Do this once a day.
I hope this helps.
