Hives may range in size from the head of pin to a dinner plate, but one thing is for sure: they will be itchy, uncomfortable, and unsightly. The good news is you don’t have to just wait for the hives to fade on their own–a process that might take days or weeks. Take the first step towards finding relief from hives in Newhall CA by consulting a qualified allergist from Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Medical Group.
Treating Hives in Newhall CA
When you come to Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Medical Group for treatment of hives in Newhall CA, we will do everything we can to help reduce the discomfort of your current hives and prevent future hives from developing.
The first thing we will do is stop the itching associated with your hives using antihistamines. Antihistamines are effective regardless of the cause of your hives, which might be allergies, infections, stress, sun exposure, or illness.
As a second step, we always check to see if hives may have an allergic trigger, because this will open up additional treatment possibilities. We can provide testing for common allergy triggers like:
- Insect bites or stings
If it turns out your hives do have an allergic trigger, we can provide recommendations for the treatment or management of your allergy, which can prevent more hives from forming later on.
