    I would tend to believe GP my hives are not that shape, but hey everyone is different. Concentrate on taking your over the counter drugs at night as night time, usually very early morning about 3am ish is when your own histamine levels will be highest. As I understand!

      do you not think its hives then? doctor thought allergic reaction.

      I'll try wear loose clothing as well and take the meds in the evening like you mentioned.

      so frustrating getting now!!

      It does not look like 'my hives' and any photos I have seen of them. But should it start itching, then try turning your clothes inside out (know this sounds stupid!) especially if wearing pj's to bed then seams will not irritate.......... just ideas.
