Hard lumps: Since the lumps are bilateral one has to consider the possibility of erythema nodosom.

Hives: What you describe sounds like hives, a nonspecific reaction of the skin that commonly occurs during an allergic response to some trigger. The trigger to the reaction can be many things; new food, bug bite, reaction to sun screen, etc. Lots of possibilities but only your own detective work may figure it out.Benedryl often helps with the itch. ...Read more

Difficult to say: It is difficult to say what this could be. It could be urticara. You might want to have this evaluated if it reoccurs. ...Read more
