I can't imagine having this condition.  I have problems with hives - they just come and go for no apparent reason - not often, thank God - but every once in a while.  They usually appear symmetrically on my body.  I've gone to dermatologists and they give you shots, creams, even tranquilizers.  The intense itching is almost unbearable sometimes.  Sometimes I've had allergic reactions to the medicine they give me. 

I've finally found out that if I ignore the hives, which is very hard to do - and don't touch them they will eventually go away on their own.  If I break over & scratch them, it just starts a chain reaction.  I have had to go to the emergency room before because it gets to a point where I feel like I'm going insane!  I don't know how this woman stands to "draw" on her skin and bring these whelps up!

Your hives sound like an allergy! I used to get hives from time to time, too, but one time, I had an allergic reaction to Ceflacor, which was the worst itches I ever felt.

Yes, I think it is due to an allergic reaction - but I can find no common denominators of exposure to pin it down.  My dermatologist said he could run allergy tests, but a person might show an allergy one day and then not show a reaction to it another day.   I'm very sensitive to poison ivy and scratchy things, certain cosmetics...blah, blah, blah. 

I know it sounds crazy, but when it hits me now - instead of taking medication, I find that if I meditate and calm myself down - it works as well as the pills and creams.  Really better, I don't get the side effects.  It's weird.
