In brief: Stress Trigger

You definitely have been going through a lot over the last 2 weeks.
Stress can trigger a number of health related issues including hives. Treat with non-sedating antihistamines like Zyrtec 1-2 times per day with Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for breakthrough symptoms for the next few days until hives resolve and things settle down. Take care of yourself and your husband. All the best.
