Hives after surgery

Hi
I was wondering if any of you ladies know any home remedies for hives, I'm 9 days post op and I have broken out all over my body with hives. This happened after my c-section 2 years ago and they still don't know what is causing it,
If someone does know any kind of itching remedy, please let me know......
Thank you,
Itchy

You could try oatmeal baths, if you are allowed to take a bath.

Last time I had hives it was from sulfa antibiotics. Now they won't let me take them anymore. Are you taking any medications that could give you hives?

Hives after surgery

I had them also due to the antibiotics given to me in the hospital. The Dr had to pick the best one out of many I cannot take due to hives or reactions. It was horrible, I itched for days and they gave me benedryl in the hospital from the moment they started the IV. It helped, but I had to have the antibiotic IV.

At home I took benedryl pills for another week and put benedryl creme on the bad spots like my neck. It has taken 4 weeks to get rid of the rash I got on my neck from scratching. But finally it is gone.

One side effect of benedryl is sleepiness, so be careful if you decide to take it. I usually took it in the afternoon before my nap, and then at night again. The creme has no side effects.

If it is bad, call the DR. you might need something else, or if on antibiotics a different one.

I would say benedryl and cornstarch powder. I broke out with them after taking a percocet and had to take the benedryl for several hours afterward and the nurse put cornstarch on me.
