COVID 19: Various skin reactions can occur with COVID 19 but the hives might be completely unassociated with your COVID 19 infection.

No: Hives may or may not be related to Covid infection. You may take an antihistaminic, available over the counter. If you develop swelling of the tongue or have any breathing difficulty, go to a hospital. Covid-19: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html Wish you good health!
