are these hives or .....
We are in Florida for the holiday.
About an hour after dinner the other night, at (I think) Seafood Legal, DD said she wasn't feeling well - we were shopping at a HUGE mall....we headed back to the hotel and I gave her some Gravol for her stomach. She went to bed early (for her).
Next morning she showed me a number of itchy spots, they were flat, red, not bumpy like bug bites. She got more of them, on different parts of her body. She is taking Benadryl, and is using Benadryl cream for the spots.
I'm not sure whether this is from the food at the restaurant - they DO have nuts, I discovered walnuts at the bottom of my salad, and she did have clam chowder as an appetizer, and then fish and chips - all of which she's had before (just not there!)
It could just be bug bites, or something from the ocean....
Do hives reappear in the same place? DO they have to be raised?
She is feelinmg okay, just that the Benadryl really makes her tired, and her spots are still itchy.
Any ideas, hints, facts....?
