Get fast relief for hives in Somis CA from our caring allergy doctors.
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 Somis CA by consulting a qualified allergist from Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Medical Group.
Treating Hives in Somis CA
When you come to Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Medical Group for treatment of hives in Somis 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.
Next, we will run quick 15-minute allergy tests to determine if your hives have an allergic trigger. Our tests can identify allergies related to:
- 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.
