why did I breakout in hives for 3 months?
Dec 15, 2005

I went through a traumatic experience at work; however, days before that I had one occurrence of hives. After the traumatic experience, I broke out in hives for three months continuously. My doctor prescribed a 24 hour antihistamine (Allegra) which stopped it. The hive have gone. Should I stop the medication. What could the possible etiology be?
