Hello Sisters,
I am now three months post op (March 3rd) About two weeks ago I asked for an increase in the Premarin I was taking. Slowly I started itching my arms (the area between my wrist and elbow) It's gotten to the point now that I have a case of full blown hives. At first I thought I was developing a nut allergy so I took them out of my diet. No change. I had also been chewing alot of gum containing sorbitol so I got rid of that, very little change. Could I be having an allergic reaction to my Premarin? I put a call into my doctor so hopefully he will be able to help me. Taking antihistamines helps. Topical benedryl does little.
If anyone else has had this expeirence please let me know what you did to take care of the problem. I have these little itchy bumps all over both arms. Tired of scratching!!

Re: Hives

Could be a coincidence or could be related. It is really hard to say. I've developed different allergies over the years. I use to be able to use any laundry soap but now have to stick to Tide or All. If I use anything else I get rashes. I have to be careful with bath soaps also.

Do give your doctor a call and have this checked out.

Re: Hives

Hi Kim,
Thank you for taking the time to respond I did call my doctor. He said it could be the HRT but I was also super stressed out about an issue at work. When that issue was resolved the itching started to go away.
I've also switched to the divelle (sp?)dot patch. Today was my first day-so far so good. Forgot I even had it on.
My hives are gone and that 'itchy' feeling is almost gone too.

Thanks again!
