In brief: Antihistamines

Hives are often made worse or appear primarily in association with stress or stressful events/ situations.
Hives can be controlled or prevented with the use of long-acting antihistamines such as zyrtec or allegra (fexofenadine). Unfortunately, you must take them in advance, so that probably means daily.
