Question
I get hives and have enlarger prostate,so can only take zertec twice a week.a lot of people use apple soda vinegar and baking soda on skin for hives.they say apple cider vinegar netulises baking soda.but when both get into your blood-stream can it cause dmage.what can they use for hives if you cant take anti-histimines

Answer
Hi Howard,
You first need to find the cause of the hives and avoid it. Hives can be relieved by calamine lotion, also Bactine spray which has an anti infective and local anesthetic can temporarily relive the discomfort.
Thank you for using Allexperts.
Sincerely,
