Well as you describe,hives could be associated with contrast given during CT scan.

You should take OTC Cetirizine.

Also apply cool compresses and OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream on affected area.

If you have associated shortness of breath then see your doctor ASAP.

Avoid any physical exertion,hot water bath,excessive sweating,sun exposure till you feel better.
