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?

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
