Daytime Drowsiness

I don't know if some of you have noticed that lately, I don't post on my blog as much as I used to; and sad to say, I don't visit other blogs as much as I used to, too. I'm so sorry about that.
I am not sure if some of you remembered that I have been having problem with breakouts. Actually, it has been two months now. I can't believe this; having breakouts every night and day for two months already. This should be something to be alert about. We can't pinpoint what was the cause of this. Everytime we consulted a doctor, they just told me to take Benadryl and keep a food diary. Everybody in the house knows and agreed with me that it has nothing to do with what I ate. I ate different thing everyday but I still got hives. I stopped taking my vitamins. There are foods that I can't eat. I changed my body soap and shampoo; but I'm still getting hives.
Few nights ago, I was rushed to the emergency room because of unbearable discomfort of the hives. I was hoping that they will give me something different and can give me some enlightment regarding my hives but I was just disappointed. It was all the same thing that they prescribed me, Benadryl. And they give me some Steroid, too, to calm down my system. Although it works, and I did not have hives the following day, but it was not what I want to happen. I want somebody to tell me what causes the hives and how to avoid it. I was so disappointed that I said to myself that they were wrong when they say that America is advance when it comes to medical studies.
Taking Benadryl everyday gives me daytime drowsiness and it doesn't really cures it. One more thing is, I don't even know how long I will keep taking this Benadryl. I don't think that long-term taking of Benadryl is safe.
