I have not heard of ketotifen fumarate before. I checked online & it seems that it may be a type of antihistamine.
It may be something you want to talk to your doctor about. The thing about antihistamines, is that some people that have Cholinergic Urticaria can manage their hives with them. In my personal experience, they maybe help 1-5%, but I made a personal decisioin that it really wasn’t worth it & I didn’t really want to take meds all the time if I wasn’t going to be 100% cured.
So since you are having such a severe case, you may want to see make a doctors appointment & see if there are any other treatments or antihistamines he may recommend.

I really have almost given up on antihistamines alltogether. But that is just because I have tried quite a few of them without any good results.
But again, I like to stress the fact that everyone should try their own treatments through their doctor. Some people are able to really help their Cholinergic Urticaria with antihistamines, etc.
But again thanks for sharing your experience with it.
