Hives

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello!  I’m 47 and in peri menopause, I think.  I’ve recently started getting a rash all over different parts of my body which is itchy and hot.  Are hives a symptom of peri?  Thank you!

    Apparently yes! I get this all the time. My scalp, neck and body. First one to go is usually my lower neck and chest. No other reason for it and nothing helps. I found out on here that it was quite common! I’ve always got a stock of hydrocortisone, antihistamine and E45 or aqueous cream in the house which does help to calm it.

    Allergen sensitivity can increase due to hormonal imbalances. I’m addition, our skin becomes more irritated due to its decrease in moisture. Things like hot showers, cold temperatures, and certain foods worsen symptoms

      What foods? Weirdly this thread comes up today and my neck and back are really itchy! I did shower last night so it could be that but it would be good to isolate foods too!
