Is it at all possible to have chronic hives associated with a mold or mildew allergy?
It would be highly unlikely that chronic urticaria would be caused by mildew odors. Mold reactions usually cause respiratory symptoms. We rarely can determine the cause of chronic urticaria and therefore it is termed chronic idiopathic (unknown) urticaria.
