Our expert says:
I can understand the concern you have for your mum. I have dealt personally with many skin conditions, whether it is hives, rashes (eg. shingles), psoriasis etc.
As a refelxologist, incorporating meridians, we don't always focus on the symptom, eg the hives. We would relate it to a meridian and take it from there.
Without a full consultation with your mum I would say that she might not be able to find the 'cause' of the hives flaring because her system is congested. And unless her system is decongested and 'clean' she might not be able to pin point what is causing the irritation.
It is like trying to do a roast in a roasting pan without cleaning it from the previous time.
Your mum would need to see a registered reflexologist so that a case history can be taken and having a look at her feet together with other signs that the body might be showing.

If there are any other questions please feel free to ask.
I hope this helps and that it has given you and your mum a different direction to go to for relief. There is nothing more frustrating than not knowing why one's body is not functioning to its full potential.
