    Hives

    I have a ten year old that is suffering from chronic hives.  We have been to a specialist and they have performed gratuitous blood tests and charged us astronomically for them, but they have yet to come up with anything that could be a trigger.  They are medicating him beyond my liking with Ranitidine and Omeprazole.  They have told us to keep him on these indefinitely but I have a hard time medicating him every day without knowing the effects they can cause after long term use.  I also don’t like the fact that no one can give me any sort of answer other than just medicate him and they will go away someday.  Can anyone give me any advice or help?   It’s getting frustrating for him when all of the other kids are pointing and acting like he has cooties.
