I use either benedryl or Zyrtec. The last time I had severe hives was in EMT class and my instructor gave me a shot of Epinephrine only because they were beginning to block my airway. Sometimes a bath in Aveno will help with the itching depending on how bad it is. The next time she is at the doctors ask about a allergy screening. I had to do that once I learned I was allergic to nuts to find out what else cause me to have allergic reactions.

I cannot take Benedryl, so I use Calahist. It's a topical lotion that comes in the traditional pink or new clear. It helps with the itching a lot.

It's weird that you asked that, I had a case of hives last Thursday. It was an allergic reaction to the high pollen. I took allergy medicine, Zyrtec, ibuprofen. My sister gave me 2 types of over the counter medicines to rub on me, but she's asleep, I'll post later, it completely stopped the itching..
