Taking sulfamethoxazole for cellulitis on my leg but now I've been getting tiny really itchy hives on my hands. Am I allergic and what should I do?

In brief: Possible

Although I expect an allergic reaction to sulfa to be more generalized, you should stop taking the medication and ask your doctor to prescribe a substitute just in case.
