  • Think back to when they started. Have been doing anything different or been exposed to any thing new? Could also be from food. Think about everything. I took meds once and didn't get hives until almost two weeks later.

  • A doctor can arrange for you to have an allergy panel done...they will swab areas of your skin with know allergins and watch for reactions.

  • Could be something you ingested. That's how my mom found out I was allergic to pcn. She gave to me when I was little and I broke out in a rash all over me.

  • Your best bet is to go see an allergist - they will test you for everything and then you can finally know what to avoid
