Re: WWYD re: full body hives

A couple of recommendations/comments:

1. I'd take her to see an allergy specialist to follow up, I'd be calling Monday to make the appt.

2. Benedryl is actually pretty safe in the grand scheme of things, we carry it for DD's allergies and she's taken it with no issues. Plus it was one of the very few things during pregnancy I was allowed to take for allergies. I'd get a ped's opinion on that.

3. Ditto the pp who suggested a food diary, allergies are tough to pin down sometimes though.

Lastly, I had hives like that when I was about 16, and they were miserable. To this day, we have no idea what they were from. I hope she feels better soon.
