Hi, my 3 year old son developed hives one week ago! They have been spreading from belly to back to bum, up his neck on to his face, his feet (not all at the same time) they diminish with benedryl but come right back. Dr. said it's viral - anyone else deal with this? I feel like after a week they should be gone! They also recommended giving zantac & zyrtec together as an antihisthamine - I would rather not buy them but maybe I should?

My 2 1/2 year old has the same thing! Only not on trunk, legs, arms and face. Also has a caugh. Not sure if its related. Dr said it was probably a virus and it could come and go for weeks:(. Benadryl seems to make them disappear until it wears off then they are back! Such a strange thing. Never have seen this sort of thing before??
Wonder if it is contagious? I'm 51/2 months pregnant. Felling worried:(
