Has chronic urticaria, pain and discomfort. Check for metal fragments in blood?

My father has chronic urticaria and he has suffered with this for about 4 years. He is in terrible pain and discomfort but nothing seems to help. Surely there must be some solution to this condition. My theory s that he needs a blood test to check for metal fragments in his blood, which may be present from a metal hip which was fitted.

usually metal hip does not result in metal fragments and does not result in itching.

The cause of urticaria should be sorted out properly and treated accordingly.

he can use painkillers and antihistamines after consulting his doctor.
