I have been getting itchy hives on my upper body and painful, swollen lymph nodes behind my ears and on the back of my head and neck for around 4 years now. I'm 26. I got breast implants 5 years ago. When I get a patch of hives they will last for a couple of weeks. Same with the lymph nodes. The only things that make the hives and swollen lymph nodes go away are Prednisone or Mederall dose pack. Zyrtec helps the itching. I did not have any hives or swollen lymph nodes the whole time I was pregnant, but they returned a couple of weeks after I delivered. Has anyone experienced something similar? Any idea what it is? I have a feeling it is some sort of autoimmune disorder.Answer Question
