How do you treat hives at home?
I was prescribed Clindamycin for an infected wisdom tooth before I could get it taken out. I had the extraction done and all went well, but now, ten days after being prescribed the antibiotic, I broke out in hives. I haven't had any respiratory problems and the urgent care center nurse told me not to worry about it unless the hives get unbearable. They're really not very itchy (I haven't been scratching) and a milk & oatmeal bath in cool water plus Benadryl helped them go down a lot but I'm wondering if any fellow Hubbers have some home remedy knowledge to share? Thanks in advance!
You are allergic to your antibiotics and need to tell your doctor as this serious. Essential oil of lavender blended wit almond carrier oil would help so would chamomile water. Poor hot water over chamomile flowers, allow to cool and apply to cotton wool. Antibiotics makes your skin more sensitive to Sun so avoid the sun when you are taking antibiotics. The nurse is wrong - sensitivity to antibiotics is serious and can be life threatening.
I totally agree with Healthyannie, it is very serious. Benedryl, or maybe claritin for hives, might be a better choice, tell your doctor, and your pharmacist, so he can put it on your profile, so that your not prescribed it again, or a derivative.

I would like to hear your opinion on antibiotics and our practice with it. Many believe that antibiotics are overly prescribed and that we are seeing many resistance strains.
