In brief: Can be painful.

Urticaria may be painful especially if near a joint or if the lesions are due to vasculiis.
You need to see you doctor.

In brief: Itchy

But angioedema can be painful.
Vasculitis, an inflammation of the blood vessels that sometimes produces a rash that resembles hives, can be painful. Painful "hives" is a good reason to see a board-certified allergist/immunologist.
