thanks for all the help. we eliminated all the food that was bothering her got rid of the hives. we went to dermatologist for the bad skin rash and got creme for her and it seems to help with doing a bleach bath. now she just has the runny nose and watery eyes. the dematologist thinks the allergies got more severe from her stopping breastmilk, having teeth coming in and the weather changing just brought down her immune system to not being able to fight it off. we go back to dermatolgist on the 14th and then back to the pedetrician the 21st. i will let youy all know how things are going.

my 16 month old has horrible allergies. We found that with major weather changes his act up the most of the time. I use doterra oils peppermint, lavender, and lemon. two to three times a day i rub all three of those and coconut oil on his feet and then put a bit of coconut oil and peppermint under his nose. It works way better then all of the over the counter meds with no side effects and it call be used on all ages, even new borns.

have the same problem with my daughter, the environmental allergies, her dad and grandma are also crazy allergic to almost everything in the atmosphere ( lol ) so our pediatrician just sent in the prescription for the generic zyrtec liquid, its amazing! i was having to sleep sitting up with her on my chest so she could breathe through the mucus and she would almost puke coughing and sneezing, and still breaks out in hives around cats. if you think your LO has allergies everyone will benefit greatly from seeing the pediatrician about it

Take 4 drops of doTERRA's Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint in a capsule or on bottoms of feet. Sounds odd I know, but you will be in awe at the results!
I use this on my oldest daughter and my son both have upper respiratory infections all the time because of it as soon as they start coughing or runny nose or show signs of being sick I use an oil blend call breathe and it has all those oils plus a few more that help with all that I dont like the over the counter drugs cause of the side effects and the oils have none. LOVE THEM!!!!!!! check out my sites to learn more.

When I was a baby I got hives and eczema frequently. My mother eliminated egg yolks, citrus fruit, and strawberries from my diet and I did much better. My brother turned out to be sensitive to milk fat, and my sister to wheat and soap. As adults we all still have allergies, even though I underwent 8 years of allergy shots. We have them much more under control now, but still keep plenty of Benedryl around and keep an eye out for allergens. My sister turned out to be horribly allergic to dust mites as well, so she moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, because dust mites can't live at that altitude.
Get your child to a pediatric allergist to find out what the worst offenders are for her. If it turns out to all be air-born things, such as mold, pollen, pet dander, and so on, you might invest in a HEPA filter for each room in which she spends a lot of time. Allergy shots can sometimes help, and for those with sensitive skin, try using Cetaphil or its generic equivalent instead of soap.

My daughter get all that. The hive she get often. There was berries in one of the fruit things she eats, that was one cause, once I took her the the ER for hives covering her from head to toe but since she was not irritated or anything else they sent us home and told us it would go away. Currently she has hive again and I have not clue what it could be. She is itichy and we are using creams but I was able to narrow it down to something she ate while at he GP or daycare. I am a Mom on a trail, I will figure it out because if she keep eating it it will get worst. Sorry not much help to you

My little man has allergies. He has the sneezing, watery eyes and runny nose. He gets it from me. He hasn't had hives. His problem was cedar, like me. We use the generic zyrtec and it helps. Getting hives sounds a little more serious. Glad you took yours to see a dermatologist as it sounds like something more than regular environmental allergies. Also, have you changed laundry detergents, soaps or dish detergent? And don't overlook dyes in any meds or drinks/foods. I am allergic to one of the dyes in dimetap. I have a friend that has to take a double dose of zyrtec to keep from getting hives, so it can be a life long deal. Good luck and if you are still concerned I would try to see an allergist pretty soon.

My daughter has allergies (environmental) she hasn't had hives but has had a runny nose, gunk in her throat to the point we had to literally use swabs to clean the mucus crap out so she could breathe easier (she hated us digging in her throat!) sneezing, and gunky eyes a little in the morning.
Dr said it was environmental allergies, figures since her dad has a slew of them and recently found out a tree in our front yard was a huge culprit (Juniper tree and it was in bloom)
We have to give her Benadryl daily when the pollen count is up, and keep a cool mist humidifier on, and keep our house no warmer than 68. Also doing a major cleaning session on the house from top to bottom to get all traces of dust and pollen helps every time (Dr recommended so she wouldn’t be coming into contact with it)
I would super suggest if yours is getting hives over the body to take your little one in it could be food related or contact etc. They may need to test your baby out to see what exactly is the allergy problem.
Also Allie has really sensitive skin and she literally gets blisters on her area (down there) when her allergies kick up or is starting to get teeth in. I clean and wipe use ointment but OMG I seriously thought I did something wrong when we saw blisters – Dr. Y said it was normal for some babies to break out with rashes when they are teething (figures only mine gets blisters) But I did everything and I know it was painful and it happened SUPER fast between one diaper changing to the next.
I swear if I could put her in a bubble ball….
