Got Hives? Skip the Steroids

Even though the steroid prednisone is commonly prescribed for patients with itching associated with hives, a French study found it provided no more relief than a placebo.

"Prednisone is a strong and great drug for certain problems, but it is no better than antihistamine treatment for patients who are itching with hives," said the study's lead author Caroline Barniol, MD, of the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire in Toulouse, France.

"The antihistamine levocetirizine alone achieved full itching relief within 2 days for 76 percent of patients. With the addition of prednisone, the relief scores were actually worse." Levocetirizine is a prescription drug related to Benadryl.

Two days after undergoing emergency treatment for hives, 62 percent of patients treated with levocetirizine and prednisone had an "itch score" of 0, while 76 percent of those in the placebo group (levocetirizine and placebo) had an itch score of 0. In addition, 30 percent of patients in the prednisone group and 24 percent in the placebo group reported relapses.

You could have what my sis has. Autoimmune hives. See a dermatologist there is help. If that is it its because your body sees your skin as a foreign object and its trying to get rid of it.
