In brief: Peace of mind?

Epi pens are usually kept by people who have had an anaphylactic reaction to an allergen (life threatening situation).
This is something you should discuss with your physician.

In brief: Hives

The only reason to carry an Epipen (epinephrine) if you ever developed swelling of your mouth or discomfort in your throat when you hives were bad.
It varies from individual to individual, consult with your doctor who knows you better then an online forum.
