Hi, I'm in this same miserable boat with the rest of you. I've had hives chronically since October. They've been really bad lately. It's so frustrating because it's such a guessing game and there's just not much controlling them, especially with limited healthcare and money.
I have had hives since late July and they have been getting progressively worse. I really hope that others are still around, not that I hope anyone is still suffering from the hives but I just really want to be connected with people who understand. This has become a really major part of my daily life and I really want to find support.
Hi all, chronic hiver here! I've had daily hives and general itching for over 6 years. Currently I'm on twice daily allegra. Keeps the hives under the surface but I almost always feel the itch. :( Looking forward to meeting others with this condition.

Hi. Im new to this site so bare with me. :) I have not been diagnosed with chronic hives, but I havnt brought it to my docs attention yet. I get them bad boys EVERY SINGE DAY. Arms, legs, back, neck, even scalp...no place is safe. Im sick of it. Trying to cut out propelyne glycol and see if maybe that is what is causing it. I hate it. Sorry you all suffer from the same but I am glad I found this team so I can talk to someone with the same problem. Dont know what the trigger is...but I am determined to find out. Tired of sporting tiny-to-large welts n bumps out of the blue. Anyways, glad I joined.
Little did I know - when I joined this group yesterday - I would become the leader today. Please understand, I do not have any medical degree, I do not profess to understand Chronic Urticaria. I am a fellow sufferer who is doing my best to work thru it - by reading and investigating, and of course by changing my eating habits. If you would like to join me on this journey - it would be nice not to travel the road alone.
Hi! I am looking for others who suffer with these horrible hives. I have had them on and off for a couple of years. Mine occur when my body gets too hot (after exercise or if I am too warmly dressed). They also occur from too tight clothes (waist band, shoes and underclothes).
I have been a Spark Member for many years - and been unsuccessful with it - because I gave up. I have recently gained back 30+ pounds that I lost the last time I was on here and I need to take that and another 70 off. I really want to be healthy. And so I am trying again.
I found a diet that restricts histamine and has been shown to be good to help identify if (my) Urticaria is caused by food allergy. Today I start.

My name is Cathie, I'm a mom of 3 girls, and I'm 32. I've suffered from CU since about 1997, but with the help of medication, it's fairly under control. I still suffer from acne-like breakouts after sweating, due to blockages of sweat glands, but I'm working on that with a spray that kills bacteria, fungi, and dissolves oils. I have 50 lbs to lose but my goal is 25 lbs by November 2012.
