In brief: Normal hives
Hives are usually evanescent but if they persist in the same location greater than 24 hours or leave bruising, this could indicate a more serious condition such as vasculitis.

In brief: Hives
Call your doctor for treatment of the hives and search for the cause.
Sometimes it is allergy to certain foods e.g. Wheat, soy, nuts, peanuts, fish, sea food, cow's milk or reaction to a medication or something in the house. Keep a journal of what you eat and do each day in the event this returns over and over, you may be able to determine the cause.
