Hives are labeled as either acute (less than 6 weeks) or chronic (more than 6 weeks) . The longer hives are present the less likely it is to identify the cause which are epic in numbers.

Tough to say but: It really depends upon whether or not you have found a cause that triggers the hives. If so, then a cure comes from avoiding the item.
