I have had hives for 5 months now. I've been seen by 5 doctors and they are leaning towards the diagnosis that I have hormonal allergies. I have a lot of "female problems", and they are blaming a hormonal imbalance and possibly stress. It's been absolutely awful. I take antihistamines often, the hives come and go and are on various parts of my body. They are not as bad and as often as they were in the beginning, but I just had a bad experience 2 days ago. I thought they were going away. If anyone has any info. please help.
