But it looks awful sad not usually so vain ( well, maybe a little bit!0 but it's my brother's wedding on sunday, and i need it to be gone. i can't cover it with make up as it will itch more, look worse and it will still be lumpy

got cetirizine, hydrocortisone and doublebase from docs.

anything else i can do?

please just tell me it will be gone by sunday!!

As long as you're not still in contact with what caused it, I'd think the hives will go within the day. Try to leave it uncovered as much as possible, I bet by tomorrow it'll be back to normal!

thanks lulu ! i've had it for 48 hours and not been in contact again with what caused it, hence the concern

Oh and keep cool. When I had something similar it got redder and more itchy when I got hot.

Oh no! Can't really think of anything other than what you're already doing, lots of steroid cream and diprobase. Good luck!
