Re: [IP] Hives?

Without a perscription you could try benedryl (antihistamine) and/or a
hydrocortisone cream.  Typically in the US you can get a store brand for
much less then the brand names.  This should help with the readness and
itching.  The only downside from the benedryl is it might make you a bit of
a zombee.

It is possible you aren't allergic to the dog, but the food it is eating.  I
have a friend who would break out every time her boss's dog licked her hands
after eating a treat.  Could you wear gloves or some sort of protective
clothing to keep it from licking you and see if that helps?
