You are describing hives.

These often occur from:

a. no reason , a mystery

b. allergy

c. autoimmune disease, which is rare.

Most hives come and go mysteriously, without known cause, but it is suspected that environmental exposures can do this as well.

Avoid any new products that you started using.

You must have this examined at this point as well.

Sometimes a magnified exam is needed.

So do show these to your doctor.
