Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response
Your condition could be described as an acute urticarial eruption if the lesions are red, itchy with central clearing and disappear in a few hours. Individual lesions do not last for more than 12 hours and new ones appear, and it seems they are always there.
Allergic reaction is only plausible if this was after a new medication, food you have taken and happens within a few hours. Pain killers are notorious to cause these reactions, but if you have not taken before an outbreak it is unlikely to be an allergy. However, medications can have a secondary effect on skin so do get your mdications reviewed if you are on any.
Urticaria is mostly non-alergic, although blood tests such as CBC, LFT, thyroid are necessary at some stage especially if lond-acting antihistamines over 3-4 weeks taken daily do not help.
