    Chronic hives on soles of feet and palms
    I've been suffering for chronic hives urticaria only on the soles (bottoms and sides) of my feet and toes and on the palms of my hands for over ten years... Sometimes they go away, sometimes for a few months then always come back..other times I will have them for days, weeks months with no relief, I can go a day or two with none then they are back again.. I've tried going gluten free, not wearing socks using baby soap organic laundry detergent ect ect.. I take 4 Benadryl at night to help me sleep but it does nothing for the itch and stinging. For years I've used ice packs to help me sleep, waking up with swollen itchy throbbing toes because they got too cold. Now I burn the hives with very hot water from the tap, it hurts but it takes the itch away for a little while! It actually works! . It's very depressing ! I've narrowed it down to either pressure induced or hormonal related? Does anyone else out there have hives only on their feet? And occasionally on the palms of their hands? I've also noticed that on my right underarm only below my wrist, two to three pimple like red dots that appear usually when I have a bad case of hives on my feet at the time.. Not sure if it has anything to do with it or not , but it's defiantly weird! Thank you.

    Not I, and probably not anyone looking here in the near future. Your best bet is the huge number of sites devoted just to hives.
    I am surprised that in all these years you haven't done dietary tests on yourself, other than gluten.
    I would write down virtually everything you eat for at least a month, and map out the hives on another calendar, and compare.
    Do the same at the same time with all the other triggers.
    I don't get the feeling that you have done much reading online?


    • Some food (especially peanuts, eggs, nuts and shellfish)
    • Medications, such as antibiotics (especially penicillin and sulfa), aspirin and ibuprofen
    • Insect stings or bites
    • Physical stimuli, such as pressure, cold, heat, exercise or sun exposure
    • Latex
    • Bacterial infections, including urinary tract infections and strep throat
    • Viral infections, including the common cold, infectious mononucleosis and hepatitis
    • Pet dander
    • Pollen

    As for itching and burning, the last time I got poison ivy on my feet and ankles, I couldn't get to a store, and used what was in the house: Solarcane (sunburn lotion) and gauze. I slathered the lotion all over and wrapped a lot of gauze around it, and felt instant relief from itching, and I didn't take it off for 3 days (no showers). When I did, the poison ivy was gone. I am no way suggesting this as a treatment, just relief at night. Any cooling lotion, covered.

    Hehe, thank you for your response, however everything you have suggested I have looked into and read about at least 50x over. I have spent countless hours on the internet reading every give forum and hive page imaginable. I have been to a allergist as well and had many tests done. I will continue to post on any forum I can to find some answers! Hopefully some relief will come my way, I've been cooling my hives for years with ice water and ice packs but I find that burning them with hot water helps the itch to leave for at least 2-8 hours! So I can finally get a good nights sleep again, I just discovered it last month thank god :)

    Given all you have been through, I'm still surprised that you haven't done a rigorous food chart. Despite allergy tests.

    I forgot to mention cannabis salves. People report all sorts of good things, and even lab tests all showing good results.
    For your skin, get one that contains coconut oil as a base.
    I ingest oils on cookies for pain. I can't get it legally, so get it here and there when I can from people who can get it.
