  • benedryl should definitly help but if you dont want to take medicine you can try taking a cold shower...I have heard that cold helps relieve some of the itching.

  • I have been battling hives for almost 3 years now! It is getting alot better now that I am usually almost ALL natural products. I switched from detergent-based body washes and shampoos to natural soap and shampoo. I no longer eat anything with preservatives or artifical colors. It has helped ALOT.

  • Take benedryl & use benedryl creme on them. See an allergist to find the cause.
