In brief: Heat, antihistamine

First avoid temperatures colder than the temperature which causes your hives.
Second cover as much of your skin as possible. Third, because the hives are due to the release of histamine in your skin when it cools, antihistamines will minimize or control the symptoms. See an allergist. Avoid swimming in cold water and drinking cold drinks to prevent potentially life threatening reactions.
