Got red blotchy skin bumps and hives. Using protein powder. What could these be?

Hi. When I have been waking up the past 2 days in my bed, my whole body has red blotchy skin bumps and hives all over it. The only new thing I have been using is a new protein powder. But once i get up and start my day, it just slowly goes away. I woke up on my bed this morning again with it all and once it all went away, I did sleep on the couch once and not my bed, nothing. Woke up with barely anything. What could this be?

Thanks for the query.

You might have developed urticaria.

It is an itchy condition of skin

Characterised by formation of recurrent red bumps.

The protein powder may be the causative agent.

Please stop it.

Also take some anti histamine.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
