I have hives all over my face they developed overnight and they look like acne but got worse after I woke up and more developed . HELP

I hardly ever have acne or breakouts, and when I do there is usually one or two pimples. These look kind of like bites, I went to the dermatologist and she wasn't exactly sure what it was. She gave me Minocycline pills and some cortisone cream prescriptions.. she said to use them and call again if they get worse. I took off work today because I am a waitress and I thought they might spread to my arms maybe. I have a cat that sleeps in my room (always) and I am going to give her a bath in case maybe something she had on her gave me the rash. Please give any / all suggestions you may have!!

It sounds like an allergy. I was out at dusk, sundown, and I got some bad bites that have taken about two weeks to heal. I used witch hazel to calm the itch. I also put on hydrocortisone. If it happens again, I will probably get Benadryl cream.

Do you have any allegories? If so it could be an allergic reaction. But if you don't then it could be stress or a virus that caused that reaction. If i were you id check and see what types of viruses are going around just in case.

sometimes it depends on the face wash you use. when you wash your face, do it twice a day. once in the morning when you wake up and once again when you go to sleep. try not to use too many different products though.
