Suggest treatment for hives like symptoms on hands,elbows,chest and armpit

Yes, I am experiencing some hives that started late Friday evening. The were intense on my hands and wrist and then spread to inner elbows, under breast, around armpits, in crease where leg joins trunk, etc. They were not on my legs until last night when I had a long welt about 3-4 inches in length around y leg about 2 inches below my knee.I had none on my face. I am trying to figure out what caused them. How long after you have had an allergic contact do you get hives? They have lessoned today. Pretty much just my wrist area today. Thanks! Pat Pat
