Thanks for the query. Hives are irritating and difficult to live with. Chronic urticaria is the medical terminology if it is more than 6 weeks and this condition needs proper assessment. The triggers should be identified. Based on your description, it appears that you have intermittent variable of chronic urticaria. These conditions have strong relation to one's internal health and it needs to be evaluated as often quoted - Skin is the mirror of internal health. Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation which probably will include a non-sedative antihistamine and some other medications based on blood chemistry. Few advance treatment options also exist which requires once a month treatment. Hope it helps.
