Xolair (omalizumab) is now approved for chronic hives. It has been used for many years for allergic asthma. While it is expensive, there are programs to help cover the cost. This monthyly injection can remarkably control hives. See a board certified allergist and ask about Xolair for hives. This is the first FDA approved treatment since antihistamines.
