How Do You Treat Hives?

The first step in managing hives is to find out the cause. You can then try to avoid that trigger.

A mild case often disappears on its own after a few hours. If it lasts longer, you can try an over-the-counter antihistamine .

See a doctor if your outbreak doesn’t disappear in a few days, though. And get medical help right away if you notice symptoms of angioedema (such as swelling of the lips, tongue. or throat) or a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis ).

If you often get hives. or if your outbreaks affect you a lot, your doctor will probably prescribe antihistamines. Treatment with corticosteroids, which you take by mouth. will sometimes reduce swelling when antihistamines don’t work. But doctors usually save them for more severe cases. Your doctor may also consider a biologic drug, omalizumab (Xolair ), for chronic hives in people age 12 and over.

Home Remedies

If you’re severely allergic to bee stings or other insect bites. certain foods, or medications. ask your doctor about prescribing an emergency kit with epinephrine shots. You would use these to treat anaphylaxis. Always carry two epinephrine kits with you.

When to Call Your Doctor

Tell your doctor if you keep getting bouts of hives that last a month or more.

Call 911 or get emergency medical help immediately if any of these things happen:

1. You start to get burning or itchy welts in your throat.

2. You get hives and a dry throat, cough. cold sweats, nausea. dizziness. trouble breathing. or a sharp drop in blood pressure after a bee sting or insect bite or a new medication. This may be anaphylaxis. Give yourself an epinephrine shot, even if you’re unsure whether your symptoms are allergy related. It’s safe to use. You’ll still need medical attention even if your symptoms seem to stop.

3. You have symptoms of angioedema (again, that’s swelling of the lips, tongue. or throat). You need immediate medical attention so that it doesn’t block the air passage to the lungs .

Royal’s Integrated Pest Management Approach for Controlling Bed Bugs

Royal Pest Management’s policy for bed bug control is defined in 4 separate sections:

Most bed bug jobs are different and present unique challenges specific to their individual locations and type of structure.
However, Royal has created a Bed Bug Control Program that we have found to be a highly effective process to treat for bed bugs.

Royal Pest Solutions is planet friendly and PET-FRIENDLY. Before we perform any pest service at your home, our Pest Professionals will talk with you about your home, your family, and your pets.

Royal understands that your pets are part of your family. It’s important we know the type of pets you have, where they eat and sleep, and if they have recently been treated for any pest problems.

Here’s an example of how Royal cares about your pet. Say your dog brings fleas into your home. You may take him to the vet for a flea treatment, then put a flea collar on him, and then have a Royal Pest Professional treat your home to eliminate fleas.

Truly Targeted Pest Control

Beneficial insects and other creatures, such as honeybees, birds, praying mantis, and (our favorite) butterflies, need to fly, pollinate and fulfill their essential functions to the planet without fear of the unintended effects of pest control.

Royal Planet Friendly Pest Control provides a much greater margin of safety, presents theLOWEST POSSIBLE IMPACT to the environment, and ensures highly effective control of a wide range of insect pests.
