I had hives for 15 years (all through middle and high school and then college...so much fun) but they went away these past two years when I was diagnosed with alopecia (my hair falls out). I'm 9 weeks pregnant and my hives have come back with a vengeance. My legs, arms, and chest are completely covered in them. Has anyone else experienced this? And if so, what did you do to alleviate the bumps and pain?
