Re: Please help!!

Hi Alliemay

From my understanding and experience with hives, the sooner they appear, the worse the reaction is. I am allergic to aspirin, and about 11 years ago I took some unknowingly. It took a few hours but my eyes and lips swelled and I did end up in the ER. It was not life threatening but I did need a shot and it took several days for the swelling to go down. I was able to use ibuprofin for years without problems. I stopped using it during my first pregnancy and after the birth of my oldest, I used it one time and swelled badly. That was the end of that. I have also swelled for reasons unknown. But I do remember being told by my allergist that the sooner the reaction...the worse the reaction. Hope this helps.
