Last summer my 11 year old daughter started getting welts. If she scratched anywhere, a welt would appear. They don't last long and can occur anywhere on her body. She says she feels an itch, she scratches and then she gets a welt (all shapes and sizes). Initially I thought it was from the chlorine of the pool, but it's months later and she still gets them on a daily basis. I gave her Claritin for Hives and it helps her not itch, but she still gets the welts/hives. Does anyone have any ideas? I have an alergy appointment scheduled for her, but in the meantime, I want to know if anyone else has experienced this.

Welts/hives
She might be having a allergic reaction to something. A type of food, dust or anything. You can become allergic to something all of the sudden that you have never had a problem with before. The best you can do is wait to see the allergist like you said. good luck!

Most of the time it goes itself but if its not vanishing then go and give her a full skin checkup from a good skin doctor.
