Dermatologist 's  Response
There is a long list of causes of hives like ingestion of food items, inhalation of chemicals, infections, worm infestation, autoantibody formation etc.
Being gluten free will work only if it is the cause. Most of the times we can not reach at the cause.
For the time being you start using oral antihistaminics like cetirizine/levocetirizine regularly and visit a dermatologist for further management.
