    Question Antihistamines and lupus

    I was wondering if anyone has had and positive effects on their lupus hives or lesions using OTC or prescription anti histamines ( like hydroxyzine).

    The answer is yes but not near as well as going to the doctor and getting the shot. The shot stops them right away. Be careful though, never take any OTC until you check with your doctor and make sure that it doesn't have any counter effects with your current meds

    the reason i asked is because my dr. gave me some hydroxyzine and they seem to be working a little and i dont have a positive ana yet so i was just ridiculously hoping that maybe if it was helping then this couldn't be lupus. im still in denial i guess lol
