Hi,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. What you seem to be having is chronic hives. In most of the cases of chronic urticaria, the underlying pathology is idiopathic i.e. it is not linked to any cause. It is essential to rule out the presence of serious illnesses of which recurring hives can be a symptom. Examples are liver diseases like hepatitis, hyperthyroidism, lymphomas, collagen vascular diseases, and cancers of the rectum, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract. I would suggest you to consult an allergist and get all these causes ruled out. Till then take some antihistaminics and apply some calamine lotion on the rashes.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations, and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
