I have been breaking out in hives, randomly and in different areas on my body for over 9 months. The hives appear on many different areas of my body, but always appear on the outside skin of my vagina. I believe the hives are a result of a hormonal imbalance. I went to my family doctor who gave me some medicine to stop the itch but that was useless. I have tried all of the over-the-counter itch creams - which sometimes provide limited relief but do not cure the problem. The hives come and go without warning and do not appear to be an allergy related problem. I sometimes wake up during the night with the urge to itch and find that I have broken out. This may not be a common problem but it does appear to be related to perimenopause. Please help and advise as to what course of action needs to be taken.
