When should I seek medical attention for hives?

My three year old has hives all over his body. We noticed it about 2 hours ago. We have no idea if it’s food or environmental. No known allergies. He’s sleeping now. Should I have concern about anaphylaxis? Or would that have happened by now? Can I let him sleep in peace?

As you explain the situation it is an allergic reaction probably due to any food mostly. If she seems quite let him sleep and after discussion with his pediatrician to get further advice if needed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
