In brief: Hives

Typically the individual spots of hives last less than a day although new ones may keep appearing elsewhere.
They can be unbearably itchy. Over the counter antihistamines can be quite helpful. An allergist can help determine if there is an allergic cause such as medication, food, bee sting and more but sometimes they just come and go like a storm passing through.

OK to use OTC 1% Hydrocortisone, a thin film over the area 2-3 times daily.
