Hello and welcome to e health forum.

It seems that you might be having urticaria.

You might benefit by consulting a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

In the mean time, antihistamines (Benadryl) and ice packs might be helpful to reduce your symptoms.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be due to vasculitis. I would suggest you spot urine for PC ratio, ultrasound KUB and ANA to sort out the underlying problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
