In brief: Yes and maybe

If the slimming diet is healthy and balanced, no.
If it is lacking in certain nutrients, or is being assisted by laxatives or diet pills, then yes. Any stress on the body (including the metabolic stress from a bad diet) can produce hives, but so can many other conditions, such as allergies, so be on the alert for food or environmental allergens. Hope this helps!
