  • Has she eaten anything out of the Norm?
    Is she allergic to anything, that you know of?

    P.S. Cute Picture! :)
    She looks like my friends daughter.

  • I would definately consult a Dr. about this... it could be allergies to any number of things... IT could be dangerous because it could lead to anaphylactic shock.. Get her in to see the Dr....

  • That's right - hives are nothing to mess with and can come from foods or outside irritants. My daughter has a deadly allergy to peanuts and the first thing that happens when she passes by some is hives. Don't want to scare you, but it is a serious thing. Keep benadryl on hand!

  • Talk with your Dr. It could be anything from a certain food to your laundry detergent.

  • although no one believes us three people in my family are allergic to the cold.... it could be absolutly anything. If you take her to the doctors they might make her get tested for allergies and that includes like 75+ shots. not to scare you

  • been allergic to stuff all my life, some are minor irritations some are gravely serious. Make an appt with your Dr. After that sit down and make a list of anything you've changed for about a week before the hives began. Bath soap, cologne, shampoo, dryer sheets. Not just things you use on her...anything that comes in contact with her. Have you introduced new foods? You may have to do a lot of detective work and process of elimination. The Dr will advise as to her dose of Benedryl and they may want you to keep an emergency Epi kit with you at all times. Good Luck!

  • A good solution is to give your child a powerful probiotic which you can add to their milk or any cold food and this really helps his system be able to tolerate bacteria. Email me for the place to get it! lonniejenifer@verizon.net or at cafemom.
