You are having a condition, known as urticaria or hives.
Most of the cases of hives are caused by allergic reactions, and last less than 6 weeks (acute urticaria).
Acute urticaria usually show up a few minutes after contact with the allergen and can last a few hours to several weeks (usually, food allergen).
