Is it hives?

Urticaria, often called hives, wheals or nettle rash, causes itchy swellings to appear on various parts of the body. Individual hives can appear suddenly and clear within hours. Urticaria that keeps reappearing without warning is often called chronic spontaneous urticaria, or CSU for short.

Thankfully the symptoms don't last forever, and there are treatments and strategies that can help.
