I am an 18 year old girl who has been living with chronic hives for the last 8 years, AMA!
Backstory: When I was 10, I began getting hives until I was completely covered. The doctor diagnosed me with Chronic Urticaria and Angioedema. He told me it would be gone in 2-3 years. Not everyday is a bad day, but 99% of the mornings I at least wake up with them on my legs. There are many triggers and not many ways to make them go away.
Proof: If you don’t handle
gross(Edit: mildly weird looking) too well, then click this with caution.
Edit: Thank you all so much for the wonderful feedback! A lot of great recommendations, ideas, compliments, and questions have come in tonight. I thought only a couple people would see this, but I just spent hours trying to answer every comment and having a blast! Not to mention I got gold! So many of you have really improved my outlook on my situation, and hopefully I can take a lot of these ideas with me and get something good to happen :) I’m so happy to have so many people participate. Xolair was a big thing to come up tonight, and I absolutely plan on trying this. Diets, home remedies, acupuncture, marijuana, and more will be looked in to! Someone mentioned that if I find big results with something, then I should do an update AMA, and that can be done! It’s currently 2:31am and I have class in the morning, so I will get to all my messages and any further comments tomorrow:) Thanks again to all of you! You helped a girl have a great amount of fun tonight!
