mystery hives-OT
Hi Everyone~ There is never a dull moment with kids is there? Dylan my oldest woke up with hives. This happened in the being of Sept right before school to. Just hives for no reason. They put him on steriods and they dissapeared. Now they are back. I gave him zyrtec and benadryl and sent him to school. Hopefully I don't get a call to come get him. He was playing fine and didn't itch any more when he left. My ? is do you think I should still take him to the doc so they can document it so if he it keeps happening then they will be more willing to refer him to an allergist or if they seem to be better let it go? He hasn't eaten anything new or anything the same as last time and I haven't changet the laundry det. or anything like that. My dd had chronic hives a couple summers ago and after the zyrtec for 6 months they were gone and never came back. So this is new to me why it is coming back. But people with Chronic hives do have recurring hives. Any body with any experience that can help? Any opinions on weather to take him in?

I know you live up here in the frozen tundra with me.lol Could it be a cold/dry weather rash? Are they up raised, where on his body? I would think you can call the nurse and let them know whats going on...that why they still get put in his chart.

A gets hives quite often. We can sometimes pinpoint what has caused it and sometimes not. You might just call the ped and let them know what is going on. They will tell you whether or not to bring him in. It is strange what can set off the hives. Her latest break out was just pumpkin in the air. It could be just about anything and if the wind and weather has been as strange there as it is here then there is no telling what has set him off.

I hope the benadryl and stuff takes care of it and they don't cause either of you anymore trouble.

Maria~ It is freezing out isn't it? But it looks like the same thing he had in Sept and that was before the cold. I'm waiting to see what it looks like when gets home from school.

Well he came home from school and no hives. No what? I'm just going to wait and see I guess. So weird. Thanks for all the help.
Check with your
doctor first!
