Mouth hives: It is possible for an allergic response to manifest itself as hives in your mouth or throat. An antihistamine would be a good thing to take if this happens--like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) otc. If it happens repeatedly then evaluate the possible cause and avoid that substance and check with your primary care manager.
