Treating Hives in Moorpark CA
At Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Medical Group, we have two strategies for helping patients escape the discomfort of hives in Moorpark CA.
First, we can offer antihistamines to help relieve itching as well as suppress the production of histamines that cause hives to form. Antihistamines are effective regardless of the cause of your hives, which might be allergies, infections, stress, sun exposure, or illness.
Secondly, we can offer allergy testing & treatment. This can help individuals whose hives may have an allergic trigger, such as:
- Insect bites or stings
Identifying the allergic trigger of your hives is very valuable to our treatment efforts, because in some cases we can reduce your immune reaction to the trigger with immunotherapy and thereby actually prevent future outbreaks of hives.
