When hives are mild, you may not need treatment. You can often relieve the itching by placing cool cloths on the hives, or by taking cool showers.
The best remedy for hives is to try to avoid whatever triggers them.
If you have a bad allergic reaction, like shortness of breath,talk toyour doctorabout a prescription medicine called an “auto-injector.” This medicine stops the allergic reaction when you inject it into your thigh. Follow your doctor’s advice on how to use this medicine.
