Diagnosed with sjorgrens, itchy hives on upper body. Medications?

I have recently been diagnosed with sjorgrens. I have been exeriencing itchy hives on my shoulders, back (torso region), neck and arms. The hives will come and go and show up in other areas. I have been taking allergy tablets to help relieve the itching. Is hives a symptom of sjorgrens? If their any relief for itching and to make the hives go away? It is very frustrating! Thank you!

this disease causes dryness of every part so it is essential to make skin moist rather than antiallergics
you should use moisturiser like petroleum jelly to keepskin moist
and ad it becomes moist the problem decreases autmatically
anti allergic can extra benefit for itching but not treatment of it
