My pa daughter devolped a hive and I am not sure what happen? has anyone ever had this happen when you do not know why there is a hive. We were shopping and she did rub up against the rug(new). We were also at my in laws and others do eat peanut butter in the house. I did not see anything on any of the toys we were at the house for only 15 min. what do you think??? I gave her bendadryl and the hive went away.

My son often would get one or two hives. The doctors all said not to worry, but I was always worried I had exposed him to something and would make future reactions worse. We have figured out that he probably has dermatographism which is where he gets a hive after having pressure to his skin. That might fit with what happened to your daughter (rubbing up against the rug). That is something my son would likely have a hive to. It does not spread to cause anaphalaxis, it is localized. Also, we decided to take him off dairy. He had previously tested very low positive to it, but never had a reaction, so we kept giving it to him. Once we stopped that, the "hive" episodes really decreased.

Hi ESMOM,
There are many causes of hives. We had a discussion about this recently in the "Reaction to Nestle Mirage Bar" thread in the Main Discussion Board.
I have raised this thread for you ... look for the "Reaction to Nestle Mirage Bar" thread for more details.

Get your call in to the doctor right now, even if it means the answering service takes message. No telling where doc might be since this is holiday weekend, so you want to get message to doc ASAP.
IF this were my child, I would likely keep him/her home with me for the day, if at all possible.
If you do send child to school, be sure to tell teacher &/or nurse about incident & to watch for symptoms, to include possible diarrhea. If hives return, are you OK with them administering benadryl & then calling you?
It has been 7 years since my son's last-known ingestion of peanut. He did have diarrhea for a couple days afterward. He was only 1 & could not tell us of breathing difficulty as an older child might be able to.
Not intending this as medical advice. PLEASE call your doctor to get guidance.

Thanks for your response. I called the dr. office back, got their answering service, who go the dr. to call me. The school is just across the street so we did go to school today. And I personally talked with the teacher and told her of the incident last night, and if he is still itchy to give him benadryl, and yes, they are good about that. She suggested that she will have him drink lots of water to flush out his system. She asked if it was ok for him to go outside...if running around would "bring it back on"??? I said I did not know, but make sure the recess people keep an eye on him.
