Hives is a postcard from your body saying something is wrong. It’s a reaction to an irritant whether it’s outside, inside or even emotional. I’m Lauren Roy for Sugar Hollow Farm in Phillipston, Mass. If you have hives you’ll notice you have small little red very itchy bumps all over your body. It’s usually localized around heat spots like under your armpits and behind your knees and on your stomach where you concentrate a lot of heat. If you have hives, you can treat it naturally by taking a baking soda bath, just take like.
A half a cup of baking soda and put it in a nice cool bath not hot because that brings more heat to the area and it will make you itchier. You can also use oatmeal and oatmeal has natural antiinflammatory properties that can reduce the swelling and the itchiness. If you really need to, if you have a chronic hive problem, there are homeopathic tablets and tinctures on the market that help your body build its resistance to whatever you’re reacting to. If you’re having a severe reaction to something you need to seek medical attention.
