    Desperate with hives

    I got my remission diagnosis 16 Aug and I started with hives on my stomache 1 Sep and have been to the doctor twice only to have them give me more steroids. By the third week I decided to treat myself with essential oils and aloe. It is better but not gone. Any sugestions. the hives are from below my breast to the very top of my legs only in front covering my hysterectomy and cancer removing scar which is quite large.

      It sounds like some sort of cellulitis or staph. I used to use a pill called "Duricef" when I had the blood disease.

      If essential oils and aloe are helping, try a poultice with castor oil and yarrow. Cant hurt and it might very well help. Which essential oils are you using?

      Wash your hands both before and after self treatment. You might also try manukah honey (K12 or stronger). Keep any poultice covered with a wrap of soft wool cloth. Wash the wraps after each use. They usually come at least 2 in a bundle.

      If you can, either try to eat 3-4 raw garlic cloves daily or buy some Kyolic garlic extract.

      Did it start at your surgical wound and spread?

      Let me know how you are doing. There are many ways to skin the proverbial cat or clean up infection, be it bacterial or fungal ot viral.

      Best wishes

      It started about two inches above my scar and spread to sides down below panty line. Two different doctors saw it. Using Young Living eucalyptus and lavender. I'll get some castor and yarrow to see. Thank you!

      LANOLIN LOTIONS Put it on after a shower while you are still damp.
      SHEA BUTTER in chap stick.

      NO SOAP Pat uses soap only on her arm pits and crotch. Everything else gets MOISTURIZING CLEANSERs.

      hope this helps
