Treating Hives in Ventura CA
At Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Medical Group, we have two strategies for helping patients escape the discomfort of hives in Ventura CA.
Our first focus will be relieving itching with 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
Once we have identified your allergic trigger, we can provide advice on how to avoid exposure and thereby prevent hives.
Expert Help for Chronic Hives
Once you have had hives for 6 weeks or longer, the condition is considered chronic. The good news is that the experts at Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Medical Group have the specialized skills and knowledge required to treat chronic hives in Ventura CA. Chronic hives are often caused by an underlying autoimmune disorder trigger, which we can test for and help treat.
