Hives Home Remedy Comments

1 Comment for the Hives Home Remedy


okay, i got the hives after trying a benzoyl peroxide acne wash and here's what i did to get rid of them and it's pretty specific. This dude on yahoo! answers told me how he used vinegar when he bathed on his hives, and then another chick told me peanut butter. So i did both. When i showered i just poured some vinegar on my hives. It stung at first, but only for a minute or so. I rubbed it in for about 10 minutes. I got out and made sure it was dry and kept it that way for about 10 more minutes. Then i put some peanut butter on the hives and kept it there for about an hour. I scrubbed it off and went to sleep. The next morning, the hives werent altogether gone, but way less red and less noticable. Then the next night i did the same thing, but it didnt help, so i recommend not doing this 2 nights in a row. Now today, i tried my own theory: a baby powder paste. You put some water (not alot, about a 1/2 tbs full) and add baby powder and mix til pasty. Three poofs out of the bottle of powder should do it. Then take an old toothbrush and scrub the paste on the hives. Not only does it get rid of the itch, but makes the area smooth and not red! Do this for about 10 minutes, then rub with hands into skin until whiteness of powder is almost unnoticable. Keep on skin for hour under shirt, or longer, i have had no problem with this unless you are allergic to talc. Then rinse or shower off.
i just want to say thank you to everyone who helped! and i hope i could help someone with this also!

ces in az.

This works for me. I started breaking out in hives apparently in response to Az. plants/trees/grasses after living here 50+ years--at least that's what several hundred $$$ of testing indicated. Also spend several hundred $$$ on new rx's that at times held the problem at bay. Each outbreak was sooner than the last, hotter, and longer.

The baby powder toned the heat and itch in my arms immediately. I allowed the same overnight and almost overnight the color was half.

Out of desparation I searched home remedies and found this site. The article about tomatoe juice also caught my eye, which lwed to reading about acid and aklaline balance in the body.

Don't know which is cure or combination between both...but, this appraoch is better than all the high $$$ meds I've been taking. I spent this last weekend in Sedona, all abloom with pollens and ragweed. Did not break out as I did on my last visit.

Thanks for the great ideas and I'm printing them off for my allergist.
