HIVES or URTICARIA: Generalized hives can be very uncomfortable. Your md might give Epinephrine or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) shot to make you better.

Hive & rash: you have urticaria or allergic dermatitis, it is best if you see your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment, at the mean time try an antihistamine such as Zyrtec or Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) hydrocortisone cream, but you need to find out what you are allergic to. Good luck
