Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry about your daughter and her hives.
some people are more prone to skin reactions than others when they get infections or vaccines.
often times skin hives and rashes can be skin manifestations of internal inflammation
that is a good sign the hives can be controlled by over the counter antihistamines like allegra.
I like generic fexofenadine 180mg daily for my allergy symptoms
usually in these cases the reasons for the hives is due to viral infections or vaccines or internal inflammation manifesting on the skin.
as she gets older, you can take her to an allergy and immunology doctor and get skin and blood allergy testing to see what she may be allergic to specifically
but until then, you can continue to use allergra and 1% hydrocortisone creams on the hives to control them when they flare up
let me know if you have questions.
