Possible hepatitis: There are many causes of hives. Allergic reactions are the most common. Persistent hives might be from a medication, or an environmental allergen, for example. Infections can cause hives. The abnormal alt and ast can be a sign of viral hepatitis. Sometimes hepatitis will cause hives, especially in the early phase, before jaundice sets in. Chronic hives (more than 6 weeks) is more complex.
