Pots - Stress & Heat Now Frequently Causing Hives...even With New Meds


Recommended Posts

I'm still getting some hives from stress and heat (showers) and a few flare-ups here and there even with Zyrtec and Zantac. Granted, I've been on Zantac one day so maybe that's not enough time for it to really kick in.

I do have allergies, but they'd rarely caused hives before POTS. Now I get the hives frequently, even from non-allergenic causes (Stress/Emotional Situations and Heat/Hot Water/Showers).

Is this something underlying with the immune system, thus POTS?

I can't wait until I'm able to try allergy shots to see if they help, but even my allergist doesn't think they'll help the heat/stress hives as thsee are really non-allergenic sources, which I don't understand.

Thanks for any help...this is distressing!
