Have you tried going to another doctor I had hives about a year ago and i went to the emergency room and they gave me a prescription it cleared it right up. Yea I would just try and go to another doctor tell him what you're allergic to and what you tried and see what he suggests. Hope this helps

I have hives too. Mine are probably from stress. You may want to look into that. You know, a teacher at school gets cold-induced hives. Anytime the weather is cold or the air conditioner is on, she gets hives. Another allergy could be dust and mold. Get a mold tester and test the area where you sleep. Your detergent could be a culprit or the dryer sheets/softener. Another possibility is dust mites in your bedding. Get dust covers for your mattress, etc. Try not to get depressed, you will find the solution.
" Other major causes: Viruses and certain diseases, such as lupus; medications, such as antibiotics and aspirin; sunlight; heat; cold; pressure (as in the pressure of a chairback when you sit, or a tight waistband); exercise and sweating. But virtually anything can cause hives."

Monika, I had hives for 10 years but had them under control for about 5. I am going to tell you what worked for me and hope that it gives you some ideas that might help.
First of all, my hives were very bad- if I got them on my feet, my feet would blow up like footballs, same with my hands.
My hives went away when I went gluten free which means not eating anything with wheat, rye or barley in it. I found out I had celiac disease which is an intolerance to gluten. It causes the lining of the small intestine to break down and cause severe malabsorption of nutrients. So along with going gluten free, I started a program of gluten free multivitamins and omega complex capsules to help my body repair itself. That's how mine went away.
Now they were mostly controlled for 5 years by taking claritin and either serevent or advair which are asthma medications. I know of several other people who have their hives controlled by different asthma meds too. The other thing that helped but may cause its own problems is prednisone or medrol.
My expereience was that an allergist was the best specialist to work with for controlling hives but you have to find one willing to try different drugs and dosages until they are under control.
The other thing that I wish somebody had done for me in retrospect was to put me on an antidepressant like prozac or something because of how life altering the hives were for so long. I understand just how hurting, life altering, activity altering hives can be. Consider talking to a doctor about trying an antidepressant.
Lastly, I am attaching an article I read not to long ago about hives.
I hope some of this has been helpful and if you want to discuss this or just unload to someone please contact me through here.

Go to a different doctor and don't give up until somebody finds out what's causing the hives.
