Are these common Chronic Urticaria symptoms?

Ive had hives and rashes on my body for the past months (since march). My doctors diagnosed me with CIU. Just started Xolair 13 days ago and it does not seem to help me in any way. I woke up yesterday night with the WORST CIU attack thus far. (pictures attached). Should i continue with Xolaire shots? Can it be that I'm mis-diagnosed? Are the pictures posted below common with CIU patients?

*Side note, hives go away with prednisone almost instantly. But i certainly do not want t be dependent on it.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
