I suffered from outbreaks of hives for years. I still have white scars on my forearms where I scratched without relief. The dermatologist told me that stress was the problem, but the stress ended and the hives continued. I finally kept a journal of where I went, what I did, and what I ate each day. Eventually I discovered that drinking tea was the cause of my hives. If I drink tea for several days, I have hives; if not, I don't. It wasn't easy finding the cause, but living without hives is a blessing!
