Has hives for 18 years. Treatments not helping. Alternative solutions?

My daughter has had hives for 18 years. She had been tested by allergists, rhumatologists, dermatologists, everyone. She has tried traditional meda, experimental treatments, biopsy , elimination diet and moved to a different state. Nothing helps it and all her docs are stumped. They wanted to send a blood sample to Denmark but the lab stopped doing the test for IGG and IGM. Any ideas?

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hives appears in the form of itchy transient rash,

Treatment with anti histamines may help her,
But important is to know the cause.

Anything including cloth, vegetables, pollen etc may cause this.

Try to find out the cause and eliminate it.

Ig levels are done to find out a possible immune cause.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
