After three month of hives, I'm on the way to recovery...with no help from my allergist, who told me that it was autoimmune and nothing could be done.
I went to a doctor of Chinese medicine, who told me that my hives were as a result of toxins in the body, and that my liver was over-loaded.
He told me to discontinue all antihistimines etc, as they would only make my liver worse.
He told me to avoid caffeine, alchohol, sugar, red meat, peanut butter, spicy foods, bananas and oranges.
He gave me packets of cleansing teas, as well as chinese pills to detoxify me.  The therapy will last about three month.
Well. I felt the effects almost immediately.  The first couple of mornings were brutal... hives everywhere, as those toxins stared to come out of me.  Then, improvement.  It will take a while to get rid of them totally, but I'm comfortable in my clothes again, and don't have to take as many warm baths!
I can't recommend this therapy enough.  I have my life and my body back.
There is likely a doctor of Chinese medicine in your area.  Try to find one who studied in China.
Good luck! tongue

Chinese medicine is good and can work, but maybe not for everyone, as with anything use caution
I'm glad this worked for you "Gone now" and I hope it continues to be good for you...
well wishes

Out of idle curiosity - did the doctor mention "Qi" and that the Qi had stagnated in your body.

As you know, in traditional Chinese Medicine, the Qi is an internal force that maintains balance (yin-yang).
