Im female, 19 and generally healthy. I started getting hives May 2017 and they have gotten progressively worse since. Without fail, they occur every evening/night or I'll wake up with them covering my chest, arms, thighs, face etc. It has also led to severe swelling in my lips, face and eyes - I have been to A&E at least five times since they started because of this. It is not only very uncomfortable and frightening, but it also does not tend to fade for hours after they have stopped.
There seem to be no obvious triggers as they occur in many different scenarios etc. I have tried different medication from citrozene hydrochloride, loratadine, fexofenadine, steroid courses and now as of the past few days, montelukast - which if anything is making them worse.
It's holding me back as im constantly anxious about when the hives will come, or when my face will swell next and I have had to cancel trios to remote locations in fear that something will happen when I am far from help. I'm not sure where to go from here!
