Giant Hives were all over her body like this one ....

Was ready to go to Dr for prednisone and they went away .. lasted 48hrs.  How long do food allergy hives generally last?  We have mega food allergy experience but not with hives --- you'd think I would know having so much knowledge with food allergies but this came out of nowhere and not directly related to eating anything .. if so, it was delayed by hours from the last time she ate and that food contained almonds.

TreSemme 24 Hour Body :  Root Boosting Spray!!!!   Figured out what caused them!!!  They went away during the night with mega Benadryl and reappeared immediately upon spraying this hair product into her hair!!!!    Benadryl is controlling them and she washed her hair immediately . . . interesting to note my daughter's been complaining of gobs of hair falling out the past few days .. well, now we know why!!!!!

Going to look up some of the ingredients .. citronella oil is one I'm thinking may be the "root" (no pun) cause ??

Citronella is used for keeping the mozzies away!
They use it in burning oils and candles here!
WTH is it doing in a hair spray?????

I've read it's used to thwart off mites in the crops as a pesticide .. we use it in candles here in the States for mosquito repellent, too!  And in some spritz on bug sprays ... she better be careful when using those, too!

It could be something called Limonene which is in some fruits .. she has oral allergy stuff from some fuits so may be that .. but most of the chemicals themselves are in other products she uses, so probably something to do with these food group additives.

Why do we put stuff like this on our hair anyway?
