I am a 28 year old female and I have had CIU for 18 months now and I know exactly what you are all going through
It's awful and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy...
Anyway, after having tried so many doctors, I was referred to a dermatologist who is supposed to be one of the best.
He put me on a short course of cortisone along with allergex and loratadine.
Tmrw I am going for various test including auto-immunity tests - it might be that my immune system is fighting against itself (so I have been told)
Wish me luck guys, hopefully they find the answer...
What I can say, is that for the first time ever I have hope that the dermatologist will be able to help me
To all of you out there suffering with this condition, try and stay positive and don't give up hope (I know it's difficult) but just keep at it
