thank you for asking
if the urticaria is resistant i am sure underlying cause is there. allergic cause needs to be got rid of. plus etiology and type for the urticaria needs to be addressed and that needs an expert dermatologist. do as directed by your doctor. stay compliant with the medicines. try doxepin for hives. it works like charm.It needs a complete dermatological clinical correlation for further guidance.

take care
