Hi, last month my husband broke out in hives for the first time in his life. His entire body was covered so we went to the Dr. and they gave him a shot which he had an allergic reaction too (and also didn't help). So a couple days ago when he broke out again and the dr couldn't help help him I did a lot of reading to try to learn about it. He woke up friday with a few hives and by the end of the evening his back and the tops of his arms where his sleeves had been were basically one big hive, plus other little ones around his body. When he got home from work saturday still no change so before he went to bed I put coconut oil (unrefined organic) on his back and arms. When he woke up in the morning every bit was gone on his back and arms. All that was left was the little hives where there hadn't been any coconut oil.
