DS has been waking up with hives the past 3-days. He hasn't had any new foods, we have a relatively new detergent, but had been using it for almost a month without any reactions. The only thing new were Sambucus (sp?) syrup because he has had a cold, we had given that for 2 or 3 days with no problem. Also Nature's Plus Kids Immune Booster vitamins which we started at the same time, also with no problem. Friday morning he woke up with a few itchy bumps that turned into this massive welt across his stomach and around the side, but nowhere else on the body. Gave him Benadryl and it went away after a couple hours. We stopped the Sambucus and vitamin's Friday, but he has still had the hives every morning except Sunday. They've been milder, like this but maybe only because we've given him a little Benadryl right away. Talked to the nurse at the pedi's office and she sounded baffled, she mentioned maybe a virus, but thought it would be over the entire body, not just the trunk area. Any ideas? I'm think I should get him to see the doctor just because I'm worried it might get more serious. Anybody have similar experience?
