Want to share personal experience of my friend about this disease. she said that,
I've been dealing with it for most of my life. I was 5 years old when it started and I have been getting it regularly about 3 times a week.
Lately it has become worse and I've been having it everyday.
Its only been recently that I've learn to control it with an unorthodox treatment.
I've learn that the problem wasn't so much the allergens, rather its my stupid immune system that is going haywire.
After treatment to re-align and re-balance my immune system I've been free of hives for a month already.
I am very hopeful that this will continue my whole life.
