Although it’s often difficult to find the
cause of hives, some experimentation is
worth the effort if you’re suffering from
frequent rashes. Keep a food diary and
consult it to see what you’ve eaten the
day before a skin reaction. Common
causes are eggs, wheat, shellfish, soy,
peanuts, and milk.

Ironically, the latex gloves that you use
to protect your hands when you do the dishes can cause allergic
skin reactions, say researchers. Hives and other skin
problems are increasing among hospital workers, who must
use latex gloves often. If you find yourself getting rashes after
wearing latex, buy gloves lined with cotton or use vinyl gloves
as an alternative. Both are available at most pharmacies.
