Topic: Chronic Hives
This is the last test the Allergist ran for my chronic hives. I asked for this test after doing some research. As you can see under 10 is normal and I am over 35. The allergist said she doesn't know what to do so she wants to refer me to a Dermatologist for a possible skin biopsy. I already have one autoimmune disease and my mother had four.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
I am so miserable and frustrated.
