My Nephew Has Hives
The Diagnosis: Hives from an allergic reaction to the drug Amoxicillin
(which he was on for the first time for Strep Throat). Apparently, you can get an allergic reaction days after using it the medication and it can take days for the hives to go away - unlike the food allergy reactions Nathan has had.
She was told to discontinue the medication. Also to use Zyrtec in the morning everyday but to use Benadryl before bed because it can make him drowsy -- but it had the opposite affect. It made him hyper.
He seems to be getting better. Poor guy! Let's hope this is the end of his allergy reactions.
