Thanks for the post,

If there are no known substances that you could easily identify that could have triggered the hives, then it will be well thought if we start considering the fact that the hives could have been emotionally triggered or there might a developing underlying condition notably extreme cold, excessive perspiration
illness (including lupus, other autoimmune diseases, and leukemia), infections such as mononucleosis etc. Since you can not by yourself determine the listed causes, it will be wise to visit a doctor who can take a closer look to find the cause.

Hope this helps
