Can vitamin d deficiency be a cause of chronic idopathic Hives. I've been suffering for 7 months- and just found out vitamin d is 14!! ?
While there is some: ..evidence that vitamin D may be related to immune function, I can't find any specific reports of hives related to vitamin D deficiency (although there are a tremendous number of unexpected signs and symptoms of vitamin D deficiency not previously appreciated!).

Vitamin D deficiency is not a likely cause of urticaria. Allergy to pollen is a separate issue and needs different treatment.

Benadryl (diphenhydramine): I would try an antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) if you don't have a medical reason not to take it. It might make you sleepy so be aware.

Intake + Absorption: Vitamin b12, aka cyanocobalamin, is common in a huge variety of foods; low intake rare. However, none of us absorb B12 directly. Instead, the cells of the upper ⅔ of the stomach which secrete hydrochloric, hcl, acid also produce & secrete a protein, called intrinsic-factor, which binds b12. The small intestines absorb intrinsic-factor with whatever B12 is bound, & the B12 is thereby also absorbed. ...Read more
Unsure: There are few studies in humans on this that I have been able to locate. Some of the damage that alcohol does to the body involves increases in oxidizing substances, where anti-oxidants can help prevent damage, and vitamin E is an anti-oxidant.
