Two ways to make it go away:  First, for you or your doctors to identify the cause (and that may not be possible) and initiate a pattern of avoidance of the cause (if that is possible) and, secondly, treatment with an antihistamine and a corticosteroid drug, such as prednisone or medrol.  

I suggest that you make an appointment to see a Board Certified Allergist.  Most Allergists have a lot of experience with treating persons with hives and, working together, you may well be able to diagnose the cause and prescribe specific treatment for that cause.  Identifying the cause is usually very hard to do by yourself.

Good luck
