Itchy Madness

Hives are a funny thing. I just seem to get them sporadically, out of the blue, not sure what sets them off but right now I have them EVERYWHERE! This time they started out behind my ears, spread throughout my hair and face and now they are all down my back and arms. I can't think of what I might have eaten or been exposed to that would set them off at the moment. It's a good thing that we are staying in today, otherwise I might scare the good people of Arcata with my splotches and bumps. Have an un-itchy and fun weekend everyone:)

My husband and I both get them when we are very stressed, we're also migraine sufferers. A practictioner of Ayurveda said it was due to Doshic imbalance. So not what you ate, but the type of food it is and how it reacted to where your body was chemically at the time. Interesting stuff...you should have a look, probably not while you're itchy and uncomfortable, but on a better day. Feel better!

That is really interesting. I definitely have to look into that. They seems so random for me! They just pop up at the weirdest times and I can never really pinpoint one thing that may have set them off except for my allergies to eggs and the whole dust/mildew thing. Thanks for the info!
