This is common with hives and is known as 'idiopathic urticaria'. This is usually an auto-immune condition and can be quite chronic, lasting for months or years in some cases.You have not given me your child's age so I cannot recommend the correct dose, but the best treatment is Zyrtec Syrup once daily.
