...Hives...

OOOH! Hives...
Hives are the way our skin sometimes reacts to allergies, physical irritation, stress, or emotions. Special cells start releasing histamine, which makes blood vessels leak fluid into the deepest layers of skin. The often very itchy wheals that result may disappear after a few days, but can drive you nuts. So how about some releaf right. Well you could take antihistamines like Benadryl, and etc...but they can also make you drowsy. These are best taken before bedtime. You can also cool them down with cold compresses or baths. This is the best way along with a topical treatment for the hives. Yet there is a even cooler way, rub some ice on the hives burr...Another really cool natural remedy is leaves and bark of the Red alder, brewed into a strong tea. Apply it locally to the affected area, and you can even take a couple of tablespoonfuls internally. Repeat until hives are releaved. Red alder contains the astringent tannin. Also a poultice made from the leaves of the Black night-shadow may also help. Just boil the leaves after washing them really good in cold water. Then after boiling them wet a cloth in the water, putting the leaves in the cloth, fold it once and place on the affected area.
