As someone who tends to break out in hives from stress, I am contstantly looking for an easy way to deal with the itchiness that comes with them.
Lotions and creams are ok, but they can be messy, take awhile to apply, and wear off quickly. I saw Claritin Hive Relief while in the store a week back, and since I was already experiencing a nice hive outbreak, I thought I would give them a try!
They are a one-a-day non drowsy, very tiny pill. They active ingredient is Loratadine. This is not a cure for hives, just a formula that provides relief for the pain and itching that hives can cause.
This product WORKS! I have been taking it for 3 days, and have not had any urge to scratch at the hives. There is no jittery feeling (some all day medications can cause this), and I have no problems falling asleep while on this medication.
It does appear that this is the same as normal Claritin (same ingredients), just a different packaging. But it was the packaging and re-marketing as a hive product that caught my eye and made me buy!
If you can find normal Claritin cheaper than the Hive Relief formula, you should see the same results - a non-itchy way to get through those hive-filled days!
Great product, I will be buying again as nothing else has provided me the relief that Claritin Hive Relif has.
