Recently, I have been suffering from hives. I have no idea where I suddenly got this condition, but after searching furiously online for remedies and cures on how to get rid of hives. I finally found a site which provided me all the information I needed to help eliminate the hives. Hives is a really embarrassing condition to me as it seems as if I have been infected with some sort of disease. My hives personally spread throughout my neck and arms, after trying out multiple remedies I found online and both from my local market. I have come to the conclusion that baking soda works the best!
Baking soda is easily prepared, and can be found in almost every household. To apply this remedy, it is super easy and effective. Just mix baking soda with some lukewarm water and mix them together, afterwards apply it naturally onto the affected area. For the best result, it is best to repeat this process over and over again.
Another really useful tip I used was to avoid scratching and touching the hives. Even if it was unbearable, I simply resisted it. I distracted myself whenever I had the urge to scratch myself. Scratching the hives does no good, and will only cause more harm and further worsen the hives. It is also best to avoid friction on the sin and wear lose clothing. Clothing such as large t-shirts, large pants, etc can help loosen the skin and allow the skin to breathe. Avoid wearing tightly fitted clothing as it only causes more irritation against the skin and will eventually leave you to scratch yourself.
Also, be sure to avoid hot or warm moisture, protect yourself whenever you leave your home against the hot skin. You should also try to avoid really hot baths and showers as they can occasionally irritate the skin causing you to itch yourself. It is also important to consider the temperature in which you bathe in, bathing in lukewarm water is the best option.
Frequently, apply lotion onto the skin to sooth the skin and to relive the hives. Some recommended lotions can be found in your local supermarket. Some work better than others, it is all about testing which works best for you.
There are also several natural home remedies for hives that you can try such as ginger, turmeric, soda bicarbonate, etc. I personally have tested most of these but have still found that baking soda works best for me. To apply ginger you would have to chew on it everyday as well as apply a mixture of crushed ginger onto the skin. I personally hate the smell and taste, thus try to avoid this remedy. You are free to try this remedy if you are not scared of the smell of ginger. Like all the other remedies, this is not a onn day miracle treatment, you must be willing to continuously apply this remedy for a few weeks at least. The longer the better as it’ll property determine the effectiveness of the treatment.
If all else fails, I would highly recommend go seeing your local doctor as they can give you a invaluable insight as to why you are suffering from hives. Hives is a curable disease , thus you do not need to be worried as one day you will eventually find a cure for this annoying and embarrassing condition. Another quick story to boost your confidence, is that my younger brother from my parent’s side had been suffering from hives for almost 3 years before he finally got rid of it. Although it did take 3 years for him to get rid of his hives, he never gave up. He was never sad about having hives or complaining, he simply lived with it knowing that one day he’ll be freed.
