Did you ever have to take Prednisone for your hives? Were you allergic to something? Or did you have chronic ideopathic urticaria (of unknown origin)? My daughter has this kind – apparently she is not allergic to anything. We are starting to taper off the Prednisone (50 mg. one day, 5 mg. the next, etc.) and she is tolerating this well. We are hoping to get to 50 mg. one day and nothing the next and eventually taper the 50 mg. down. Thanks for the suggestion of Nettles. We may try that, but hesitate to add anything else at the moment (in addition to the Prednisone, she is taking Allegra, Doxepin, Zantac and occasionally Hydroxyzine as needed). The allergist (who has been practicing for 25 years) tells us that this is one of the most severe cases of hives he has ever treated…and she is only 10 years old. Hope your hives are under control – I certainly have sympathy for anyone in this situation.
