Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that there is not a direct connection between urticaria and his cardiac condition.
But an infection or an autoimmune disorder could lead to this complex clinical scenario. You should discuss with his doctor on these issues.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Kind regards,
