Vit D supplement: An elevated CH50 may signal inflammation. The vit D level points to vitamin D insufficiency and need for a supplement. Most cases of idiopathic urticaria have a very good prognosis especially if controlled with high dose of antihistamine.

Screen/Autoimmune ds: I would also suggest screening for autoimmune disease as an underlying cause of the condition. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/chronic-hives/basics/treatment/con-20031634
