Customer Question
Starting over, I have...

Starting over, I have had severe hives for a month or so, accompanied by a respiratory infection (chronic cough). Antihistamines, including doxepin, have not helped the hives. What do do next?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?

I have had the cough for three weeks. Only other symptoms are occasional low-grade fever at night.

Hi there. Hives can be accompanied by fatigue, cough, low grade fevers and sometimes even joint pains. Have your doctors tried you on steroids at all?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
