hives on feet

Is there anyone else out there that gets hives from low estrogen. I had this in the past. I can't be on HRT for 3-6 months and it's driving me crazy! I want my horomones back NOW!

hives on feet

I developed hives for the first time in my life 2 weeks after my hysterectomy. The hives lasted for 2 weeks and were made bearable with combo of Zyrtec and Zantac as prescribed by my dermatologist. My surgeon (gyno-oncologist) didn't think it had anything to do with the surgery. I am intrigued by your statement that it is due to lack of estrogen. Also curious if this has happened to other women.

Hi Chavkah,

I went back on estrogen and the hives disappeared. Interesting, huh!

Very interesting! I was only on one medication...Wellbutrin and I was told repeatedly that it was the source of the hives. I repeated to them that it was the only thing keeping me sane through the whole cancer thing! I was determined to stay on it since I had been taking it for 4 months without a hitch. I am still taking it and no more hives, so I have stopped the Zyrtec & Zantac. I bet it took a couple of weeks for my body to adjust to no estrogen from removal of my ovaries! Hey, I'm going to present this theory to the doctors when I see them next week.

My ovaries started to fail before this and when my levels got low the hives came! I wasn't taking an meds at the time that would have caused an allergic reaction.

I'm thinking that this is a rare occurance since I am having great difficulty researching it on the internet. So glad I saw your post. So far I have only found rare cases of women having hives just prior to their periods. Have you, at the very least, been acknowledged by your doctor that this is the connection?

I googled "menopause and hives" and found some articles on it. I'm going to ask my doctor about it today. I'm curious to see what she has to say.

My goodness, I am so relieved to have read your post. Three days following my 6 wk follow up; my entire body was covered with hives. This has been a very horrible ordeal. It has been 6months that I have hives. They are not as bad as the beginning. I do thank you for posting, I think I will mention it to my doctor. I have tried Zantac and Zyrtec and If I take the Zyrtec and Zantac twice a day they are gone, but Zyrtec makes me soooo drowsy. I take Progesterone cream daily; could this be making things worse?

Thank you for the glimmer of hope. I just started on Zoloft, becasue I can't take the anxiety any longer.
Peace ~ Kathy

Hi Beekan,

I can't imagine how you've coped for 6 months with hives! I was losing my mind. I couldn't sleep because of them and they would swell up and get hot right when I was trying to go to sleep. I ended up going back on estrogen because I couldn't stand the way I was feeling and the hives went away for good. I can't help but feel there was a connection. Good luck to you. I hope you get some relief soon.

Yikes, 6 months! I just saw my dermatologist and asked him about the estrogen connection. He didn't agree or disagree. He said that little is known about 'idiopathic hives' (unknown origin). Luckily, I have yet to have another occurence, but he said to expect them to come back some time in the future and keep medication on hand. He prescribed Zyrtec because it is suppose to be non-drowsy. Sorry to hear that it effects you differently. I hope that your hives go away, it is such a retched condition. Good luck.
