My daughter broke out in severe hives everywhere, I still don't know what caused it, but... I took her to the doctor, they put her on prednisone. For some reason it took a few days to work, maybe it never worked, I don't know. It certainly didn't work for a long while. In the mean time I had an 8 yr old crying, screaming, and scratching so much she was cutting herself. Wow! It was bad! Most of her body was angrily red. I mixed equal parts lemon, peppermint, and lavender (DoTerra) and mixed with some olive oil, I couldn't find what I had from DoTerra to dilute it some. I put 1-2 drops of each in a capsule. She swallowed 1 capsule 3 times a day for several days, and she and I rubbed it into her skin. The relief only took a few minutes to start. She would put more on as it flared up again. That's her medicine. She wouldn't go anywhere without her bottle of oil for over a month, she was afraid to. She still checks with me every now and then to make sure I have the oils on hand. It works.
