In brief: Antihistamines
Antihistamines, particularly the long acting ones like zyrtec or Allegra (fexofenadine) may be helpful.
If your hives are recurrent, i would recommend you see a board certified allergist.

In brief: OTC antihistamines
Antihistamines are the mainstay of urticaria treatment.
Excellent ones are available over-the-counter. Allegra (fexofenadine), zyrtec (cetirizine), & Claritin (loratadine) (loratidine) are all good choices because their long-acting, non-sedating (or in the case of zyrtec, infrequently sedating), and their generic forms are inexpensive. Follow instructions of the package for dose & frequency of use.
