Chronic idiopathic urticaria.. miserable

Hi. I'm new to the forum. I started itching and breaking out in hives about 9 years ago.. strangely when I became pregnant the hives and itching went away but about 6 on the after delivery, they came back. I've been on all types of medicine. I was hospitalized in 2015 and upon discharge (after 21 days and loads of different antibiotics for hospital acquired pneumonia) the hives disappeared once again. They stayed gone for a little over a year. I was again hospitalized this year due to my severe anemia and a few days after discharge, they came back... Seems to be with a vengeance to make my life miserable. I just wish they would go away or the doctor can find a med to keep them under control. Any suggestions.... Anything will help.

Hello. Up until now I never knew that anyone else had this problem. I am 54 and as far as I remember I have had chronic Urticaria since I was about 19. I thought I it was just me that hid from the sun and could never join friends or family for days out. Whenever my partner and I go on holiday I always stay inside in air conditioned loneliness while my partner sunbathes. I can't even sit in the shade of an umbrella because I still get break out in Urticaria. I only found out that other's had the same as me because I read an article on the BBC news website.
