I get hives 6 to 10 days before my period. The hives are not red and bumpy. They are just welts and 95% of the time they are just on my eyes which usually swell shut. This has been going on for 9 months. No one seems to have a cure. What can I do or who should I see?
Hives may sometimes be associated with rise in progesterone just prior to onset of menstruation. You should consult an allergist for further evaluation.
