I started with chronic hives in August. My hives are also caused by pressure (waistband, bra strap, watch) and heat. I went to the dr. and was told to take zyrtec and go to an allergist. Went to an allergist who discovered I was allergic to everything environmental (news to me) and soy, nuts, and turkey. I have struggle trying to stop eating all these items. Soy is in everthing- bread, dressing, multivitamin, lip gloss- EVERYTHING! Over Christmas I went crazy, I was covered in hives from head to toe. I made another appt with my dr. and started checking the internet. I decided to try the water thing. I drink maybe 16 oz of water a day. I wake up and drink a large coffee, then live on diet snapple, and then red wine. I thought the water was worth a try because water is good for me and it doesn't cost anything. I stopped the coffe, wine, and snapple. For the last week I have drank at least 64 oz of water a day and my hives are gone!!!!!!!!! I am still not 100% kinda still waiting for it to fail but so far so good. Try it you have nothing to loose.View Thread
