Question:

i myself suffer from cronic hives and have had them for about 4yrs and i take alot of meds for them which realy dont do much for the problem at this point im praying for a miracle. if anyone have`s anymore advice pls send it my way.

Answer:

Chronic urticaria is an extremely frustrating condition. In some patients the presence of antibodies against one's own mast cell IgE receptors suggests that an autoimmune process might be responsible. Many allergists are interested in helping such patients. You should contact one of these in your locality.
