Chronic urticaria. Treatment?

Hello doctor, I am from Bangalore and is suffering from chronic urticaria . I am consulting Dr.Smitha Warriar of Fortis Hospital. She has asked me to take your opinion on this matter as I am not able to come down to mumbai for your consultation so she suggested me to take online consultation with you as you are the expert in this field. I am having this problem from last 4-5 yrs but every time I take medicine it supresses the symptom but again the problem persists after sometime. I have been on several medicines but it didn t work. please help me how to overcome this problem. My Ige level was 2000 3 months back.
