Brief Answer:
It is urticaria which is a type of allergy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

Yes you are suffering from urticarial. It is a type of allergy. Allery can be to worms, temperature, pressure, friction or to some viruses. Many a times the cause is not known.

You may continue fexofenadine or change to levocetrizine. Also deworm yourself. If still persisting, a short course of oral steroids may help.

Change your bed linen frequently and put your mattress and other bedding in the sun. Let some fresh air in your room.
