Brief Answer:
More data is needed...

Detailed Answer:

I am sorry for the health problems you and your daughter are going through.

You are saying that you've been drinking herbal life shakes and the tea for a few months. Can you please specify when did the hives appeared: before/after or at the time you started to take herbal life shakes?

Can you also specify whether the hives appeared after started Minastrin?

For how long have the itching continued?

Has she also experiencing any other health problem currently: nausea, diarrhea or others?

Does she also have itching on the genitalia or anus?

From what you are describing, if itching started after starting drinking herbal life, it might be an allergic reaction to its components.

Another cause might be possible intestinal parasites; further examination of stool for ova/parasites would determine/exclude them.

Looking forward to have the requested data in!
