      I agree with @lorraine34338!!!

      I did the sme thing - they said I was anorexic and gave me an anti depressant. Needless to say it didn't work! I am currently on an autoimmune protocol diet and it's really helping. I've begun to think these hives can outsmart everything so I don't have 100% faith but for now it's AWESOME. boring but I'd rather not itch and feel panic every day. I also take zyrtech and zantac.

      Yes you are lucky i'm not getting much help but i'm pretty sure this is my problem seems to fit well with my symptoms.  Don't think this will get better though until i'm no longer working because stress makes it worse and i'm always stressed at work that is a bummer because i can't afford not to work.

      guss I have to keep plugging at it and hopefuly one day it will disspear.

      are you healthy other then rashes and itching?  Because I seem to be other then that.  

      Do you work and does it interfere with your job ?

      My specialist put me on cyclosporine which is an immune suppressant plus antihistamines, this worked for me and my hives went into remission.  If I get very stressed I still get a small outbreak but they go away quickly with the antihistamines. I was on cyclosporine for six months with a slow taper off it. Most of the time I am hive free.

      I really think so and it can be caused by more than one trigger, mine was two viruses I had, plus the gut issue plus changes to my estrogen levels, plus stress. Also having hives gives a person more stress so it can be self perpetuating unless something blocks the process like the drugs I was prescribed.

      I was tested. I have Graves, which is an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid, and even though that is controlled the test for autoimmune still is positive and very high. I have not tried cyclosprine yet but if this diet doesn't help i will for sure! I hope you find relief. Eliminating foods can take up to 90 days before you see results, BTW, and since you've had this for so long it probably will take that long for you. Best of luck !

      Rose chocolate is another thing high in histamine and Lorraine is correct in that is does have to do with the immune system.   Mine all started when under a lot of stress and I have always had panic attacks on and off.

      Hi Lorraine, does cyclosporine have side affects?   I was taking antihistamine tabs from the chemist,to no avail.   The tabs for my anxiety brought back my IBS and also made my hives worse so i came off them and now,at the moment, watching what foods I eat(keeping away from ones high in histamine)and using coconut oil as some of my skin felt leathery-like and stinging as well as itching.  My hives started off through stress and anxiety and I am waiting to have therapy as I do not want any more tabs for that.

      Hi, I see your post from 7 months ago. I hope you are better now. If not have you been checked for parasites in the gut? I have been dealing with Urticaria for 9 months before I found the cause. Two rounds of antibiotics cleared everything up for me. They found a tiny microscopic parasite Blastocystis Hominis.
