Urticaria/angioedema: is what you described, not sure what did you mean when you mentioned that angioedema was ruled out ! those recurrent acute attacks warrant keeping injectable epinephrine handy as well as antihistamines to use in case you need them again. You need to be evaluated by an allergist/immunonlogist, or a dermatologist, check aaaai.org or acaai.org for an allergist in your area, best wishes
