You seem to have Hives. I suggest you to apply a soothing lotion e.g Calamine lotion.
In addition to this you may take a tab cetrizine 10mg or tab. Loratadine10mg once daily for symptomatic relief from itching.

Brief Answer:
Acute Urticaria

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

Most commonly acute urticaria is due to allergy to either a food item/ food preservatives, medications, common infection e.g viral (flu), fungal, bacterial or dental infection etc or to alcohol intake. Usually it subsides on symptomatic treatment with an oral antihistamine e.g Cetrizine 10mg tab for 10 days to 3 weeks.
