I had an injection of dysport on Dec. 1. I have had hives. I have taken benedryl and zyrtec. When I try to stop, the hives come back. Has anyone had this happen to them? How long did the hives last. Also, I have arthymia and my heart beats quicker. When I take the benedryl and zyrtec, my blood pressure goes up. I am 69 years old. I have had botox and have had no reaction.

Dysport/Botox - Hives From Dysport
Though it's tempting to assume that if two things happen around the same time they are related, that may not be the case here.
I have not heard of hives as a result of Dysport injections although, to be sure, anything is possible. I would think, though, that the reaction would be limited to a shorter period of time, and that makes me think that something else is going on. The arrhythmia and palpitations suggest further that it's not the Dysport.
I would recommend that you see you internist and discuss these symptoms; a more general work up may be indicated.
I hope that this helps, and good luck,

Hives and dysport
I have yet to see hives from Dysport or Botox. but I guess it is possible. I would take anti-histamines to reduce the hives. If this keeps recurring, I would have your dermatologist perform a full workup. Dr. Behnam
I have not seen a reaction of hives from Dysport
I have not seen a reaction of hives from Dysport. Certainly an allergy is possible, but it would be more of a localized allergic response so it is probably not related.
