Since last week I have been getting hives randomly popping up on my body and than going away within hours. Its very annoying because sometimes they are big and other times they are just absolutely everywhere. Even if only for a few hours they itch and hurt alot. Should I see a doc or are they just going to tell me to use bennadryl and than ill wil be wasting money. Will this eventually stop? Could it be the sign of something serious? Please help!!! Additional Details Thanks guys. Well, I am getting over a cold (sniffling nose is all) so maybe its that? Also I live in florida so maybe its that wildfire bringing smoke over? Its been really smoggy because of the smoke. But I have been getting them in specific spots on my body too. My diet is relatively the same, havnt changed my clothes wash. Nothing different really. :/ Ive been stressed out many times before, dont know how stress can do it. im confused -__-
thats me too...........i get hives out of no where.......sometimes just a couple small ones, sometimes real big painful ones, i have never gone to see a doc, but i recommend you do, cuz i would, i just dont want to go in until i am havin a breakout, so he can see them for himself, and evaluate it....instead of askin me a bunch of questions(which he probably will still do).......i use caladryl for the hives, cuz i cant really take pills, they grosse me out, im sorry you get hives, one time, i broke out in my whole body, and it stayed for a whole week, i didnt know what the hell was goin on, i couldnt even go outside, infact, i think im getting one now, right on my forehead(no lie, its itchy red, and kinda bloated, ) i am real sensative when it comes to my skin, so i try not to stay out in the sun too long, ive found that accessive burning from the sun, gives me reactions, not only that but lotions do it to........could just be allergies, ,...,i hope you get better soon, i will pray for you.......here to help
I would go directly to an allergist if at all possible. Obviously you are allergic to something, but the question is what. Then you should probably try to avoid whatever it is or get on some medication. There are other very adverse affects that come with an allergy if you are highly allergic. Many people with extreme allergies carry an epi pen.
If your hives have never been checked out by a doctor, you should definitely go. Hives can be caused by an allergic reaction to a new soap, clothing or food. They can also be caused by stress. My daughter got hives when she was a baby a couple of times. Both times she had a cold and the doctor determined she had an allergic reaction to the "bug" that was in her system. The third time she got them, it was an allergic reaction to penicillin. So she can never take penicillin again. So many reasons...get checked out to be sure.
I get them when I'm upset about something- most of all when I think it's not affecting me that much- .... my body shows me otherwise in form of hives.. They come and go- just like yours. Ask your doctor, though...
you are obviously coming into contact with something that you are having an allergic reaction too. you might want to see your doctor to refer you to an allergist to find out what it is.

IDIOPATHIC HIVES SOMETIMES GO AWAY BY THEMSELVES AND YOU'LL NEVER KNOW WHY YOU GOT THEM, HOWEVER IF THIS KEEPS OCCURRING IT COULD BE A KIDNEY PROBLEM - A SERIOUS ONE, SO SEE A DOCTOR.
