Infant with severe hives - 10 daysMy 10.5 month old son has had severe hives covering his body for nearly 10 full days now.
We assume it must be an allergy, but can not find the source. He is primarily Breast-fed. Nothing unusual has been consumed by he or I.
The hives do not seem to bother him and he has no fever or wheezing.
The hives are warm to the touch and range from "bug-bite" size spots to 4-5" around when several merge together.
Any ideas for remedies to help him deal with this while we search out the source via elimination and isolation of items in his diet and our home?
He is non-vaccinated and has not taken any medications in the past weeks.

If the baby is warm and has no trouble digesting milk then a low Sulphur , say 6x twice a day for a week -- TAKEN BY YOU, may help. The baby gets the remedy with the breast feed.
If baby is cool try Hepar Sul 6x with the same method.

My daughter at 3 years old had a bad case of hives that recurred for two weeks or more. After a lot of detective work, we discovered that she had been chewing and sucking on a "glow stick" like the ones you get at fairs and carnivals. It apparently contained phosphorous, which she reacted to.
It helps to take stock of anything you know your baby might have been exposed to. One possible culprit is carpet. It can contain traces of chemicals from cleaners or carpet glue. If not that, there are many other things that most people have in their environments that they may not be aware of.
Hope the hives are easing by now. Good luck!
