Sounds like hives: Which can be triggered by allergies, & stress. Sometimes an antihistamine like benadryl, (diphenhydramine) claritin, allegra, or zyrtec can help, as well as avoiding any triggers. Sometimes it can be associated w celiac disease and/or wheat allergy. Nickel can be another trigger. If it worsens please see your doctor.
