Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Hives are due to the mast cell degranulation causing histamine release.

This can be controlled by the antihistamines like Hydroxyzine 25 to 50 mg 3 times daily.

Also oral steroids can be used to control acute flare ups.

What have you tried so far?
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
