Comment from: etz, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: December 27

I have been getting hives for over a year, been tested and nothing shows up. All the tests are negative. I have been treated with prednisone and the day after I take the last one I break out again and each time it is over larger areas of my body and itches more and I have scratched myself to death. Now I am not only red and itchy but got little sores where I have dug myself so bad. Benadryl is no longer working and Zanax doesn't do much anymore either. I feel like I am going nuts with the stress and need help desperately.
