We are si frustrated! We are the adoptive parents of an autistic child of ten years old. We have little to NO medical history to start with and now our son has been suffering from severe hives for MONTHS. Docs believed it was first his seizure meds, then anxiety meds, then sleep meds....until slowly he has been pulled off ALL meds and is STILL covered in severe hives EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY SINGLE DAY. There are times when there is not a single finger-tip size area on his body that is not swelled intensely with dramatic disfiguring hives. He is MISERABLE and no one can figure any of this out.
We have done diet restriction, chemical elimination, monitor EVERYTHING he eats, drinks, comes in contact with.....STILL WE CANNOT FIGURE THIS OUT.
Hives usually begin on his hands or feet and become worse as the day progresses.
A new twist to the complex situation is that meds prescribed to controll this reaction (all kinds of antihistamines) are now the very things that cause it to get WORSE. He has been on everything from steroids to zantac and every antihistamine they could think of.....and this just gets worse.
Has anyone.....ANYONE....come across anything like this? Advice welcome.....PLEASE!!!
Thank you so much!!!!
