Antihistamines: Antihistamines would help reduce the hives. The bigger question is whether or not the vodka is to blame or is it alcohol in general or something else entirely. Alcohol dilates blood vessels and could lead to hives. Perhaps the hives are due to something that you are exposed to when you drink vodka - is there another food item that you eat or something in the bar where you go to drink the vodka?
