Extreme hives! Steroids/benadryl/zyrtec NOT WORKING
Before the hives started Tuesday, I was very sick from Saturday-Monday. My symptoms were extreme body aches in my legs, lightheadedness and dizziness, sensitivity to light and sound. By Tuesday I was able to walk around again so I went to work. I took my lunch break at 12:00pm and ate 2 bites of chicken noodle Progresso soup. A few minutes later my ears felt like they were on fire and the rash started traveling down my body and where any clothes such as my bra and panties are. I asked to leave to go home and take benadryl. Didn't help it worsened. By 6:00pm I went to urgent care. They gave me 2 steroid injections and prescribed 2 more prescriptions to take at home. Nothing has changed! Its been 6 days. The steroid I am taking only last up to 3 hours so I'm taking benadryl and zyrtec in between the steroids…still nothing. At the moment they are better but flare right back up around 8:00 pm every night! Should I go to the hospital?
