Hi me-nurse,

Welcome to EmpowHER. The standard treatment for hives and angioedema is antihistamines, medications that reduce itching, swelling and other symptoms of histamine release. For severe hives or angioedema, doctors may also sometimes prescribe an oral corticosteroid drug — such as prednisone — which can help lessen swelling, redness and itching. For a severe attack of hives or angioedema, you may need a trip to the emergency room and an emergency injection of adrenaline.

Here's a link that might be helpful
