? Hives: These sound like urticaria(hives) or another allergic type rash. I don't think multiple insect bites are the problem. Hives will disappear in a day but may reappear , where an allergic dermatitis is more longlasting. Try to think what could have caused this allergic reaction. In the meantime take benadryl(can cause drowsiness) or claritin (loratadine). Consult your md for other evaluation.

Rash: This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes.
Once accurately assessed a treatment plan can be developed.
