In brief: Hives

It sounds as if you are having a dermatologic condition called urticaria.
Urticaria is the medical terminology for hives. It is the bodies response to a certain stimulus, such as an allergy. The body will release histamine in response to a stimulus and histamine causes redness, swelling, burning sensation and itching. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can help relieve symptoms.
