How do you get rid of hives? I've had them for nearly two weeks now. Whenever they seem to settle down for a day and I think they are finally leaving, they flare up worse than ever! I've got rid of all dietary changes, am not using soap, using washing liquid that I haven't reacted to at all in the past, and changing clothes daily and sheets every few days. Calamine doesn't help at all - in fact I feel like it makes it worse. Jeans are the ultimate flare trigger, possibly as they are tightish. I'm sick of being covered in huge red/white insanely itchy welts. On the up side, my 5 day migraine finally wore itself out (I took a Mersyndol - the first pain killer in months). My neck is incredibly sore now.
