Advice & Tips: Hives is just bad luck. I liked the medication, but my hands broke out in hives and my face was starting to break out as well. The questionnaire is asking about terminated treatments and then asks how often I take it currently. Terminates=/=current. I never take it currently, but when I did take it, there was no difficulty.
