Angry Hashimoto and Hives

I have had hives for 83 days and I am getting frustrated. Eventually the doctors determined that I have hashimoto's disease and an allergist determined that my hives are autoimmune vasculitis. That's all dandy but the only medication that will keep the hives away is steroids and I am packing on the pounds. I also went to rhemy and they determined that I also have psoriasis (lucky me) i am waiting for my second rhemy appointment to go over bloodwork. At one point it was brought up to take plaquenil to help with the hives but the doctors are afraid it will cause a psoriasis flare up, at this point I would rather have dry skin that itchy hives 24/7. Anyone been in a similar situation and have suggestions? I am starting to lose my mind!
