Hi,

This is a question about my son who is 8.

He and I both had a cold laser therapy with the Erchonia Laser 3 weeks ago. 4 days after the laser, he had hives on his face (he has never had hives before). One week later he got them again, this time on his upper arms, back and chest. He had only used the laser the one time.

I on the other hand got a fever, fatigue, very sore neck, headache for 3-4 days after using it and then have steadily improved for the most part.

My mom thinks that it was caused by the sun, said maybe the exposure did it. I highly doubt it, he's never had that reaction before.

It's been over a week without any hives, so I'm hoping it's done. They only lasted about 5-7 hours each time. AND...both times he was at my mom's house to play, she SWEARS she has nothing new at the house.

He was out in the sun a lot both times..any idea if the laser light made the sun photon's more sensitive or something??

Thanks if you have any ideas, let me know!

Ocean

Thanks! We have the Humaworm for kids, but haven't given it to him yet since he had just had the laser...then with the hives, it made me nervous.

When my uncle gets back from Alaska I will have him muscle test my son for allergies to the Humaworm and it he tests OK, I'll start him on it.

Take care,

Ocean

Hey Ocean, hives can be caused by a physical stimulus like heat, water or pressure. So I would imagine that the sun or the laser both could have caused them to pop up.

They can also be caused when the immune system triggers a histamine release.

Who knows, he could have had all these things happening at the same time. At leas they only lasted a couple hours at a time!

One other thing, did he have sunscreen on at the time? It is common for kids to react to sunscreens with SPF greater than 30. They usually develop hives after playing in the sun.

Also, check the expiration date on your sunscreen bottle. If there is none, throw it away after 1yr. People also can react to older sunscreens, kids are more sensitive so they may develop rashes when their parents don't.

But what about outside of the house? Anything new there?

Some people with electrosensitivity develop hives when a new cell phone tower or antenna is installed in the neighborhood. Look around. Call the township. It may not be Lyme related.
