Today I went to the doctor about my hives again. If you don't already know, I am suffering from Chronic Idiopatihic Urticaria. That is a fancy name for getting hives every single day and having no known cause. I have been suffering since mid-December. Back then, I was covered head to toe and sometimes my whole face and hands would get all swollen. I have improved a lot since I started on the immune suppressant therapy, but I am still getting some hives almost every day. At least there haven't been any more middle of the night trips to the ER! Now, I mostly get the hives on my hands and waist.
The doctor today started me on a new drug, Dapsone, that I can take with the Cellcept. It was originally for leprosy, so that is interesting. Hopefully it will make it so that I don't have any hives at all. As a bonus, if I had any leprosy hanging around I guess it would help with that too, lol.
Cross your fingers for me!
