My 3 yr old has hives..

On his legs. He has had it for about 3 days now from his buttocks down to his ankles. He is so uncomfortable and keeps saying he is itchy. I have changed his bedding, He has not eaten anything "new" so what could it be? No new lotions or sopas either. Is it time to go see the Dr.?

  • If I was his mother we would have already seen the doctor or the ER..
    Hives can cause you to stop breathing!
    I know it happened to me when I was 4.
    Call the dr office and ask and on call nurse or dr. If no one avalible go to the ER ..
    Mean time use oatmeal baths and lotion
    Good luck. Keep us updated
