@buggaboo6:  What are the pills? Maybe they have the same filler?

@buggaboo6:  Girlfriend, let me tell you. 

I’ve experienced something sort of similar for the past few years. Except in my case, when I went OFF BC pills I got hives EVERWHERE. They lasted for weeks. Went back on the pill, they slowly went away…has happened a few times and I’ve seen many allergy specialists who haven’t been able to give me any answers. 

One thing I did find that helped was I was drinking a lot of diet soda, and I cut that from my diet, and I am now off the pill and not experiencing any hives. The last few times I was on the pill, I was using Alesse – but the allergists REFUSED to believe it had anything to do with the pill or my horomones. I think my horomones are directly linked and I plan on going to a horomone specialist to get their opinion and see if anything is out of wack.

Good luck to you, I know how devistatingly frustrating, uncomfortable and embarrassing a reaction like this can be!

@buggaboo6: I haven’t had experience of it but a friend has and she can’t go on any birth control pill
