Treating Hives in Valencia CA
When you come to Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Medical Group for treatment of hives in Valencia 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. This treatment helps all patients, whether the hives are triggered by allergies, infections, stress, sun exposure, or an 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.
