I want information about hives. I'm not the person I'm

Customer Question
I want information about...

I want information about hives.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No, I'm not the person I'm concerned about. My grandson has an itchy rash and I wondered if it might be hives.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

He stayed overnight at my house last night. That was the first I had seen it.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

The rash looks blotchy and is on his arms and stomach. He's 7 years old and is quite an anxious little boy.

Customer reply replied 28 days ago
Sorry, I have no photo. It was red, blotchy areas, 2 or 3 on one arm, and another on his stomach. He was itching his arm at bedtime when he was almost falling asleep.
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
I don't want a call. I just wanted general information about hives or other rashes, so I might have an idea if he needs to be seen locally.
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
are you going to respond any further to me?
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 28 days ago

The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

It definitely sounds like hives though

For now you can give him children's benadryl and use topical caladryl lotion for this

It should clear in a day or two

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.
