I have allergies on my skin (Hives). My skin is bumpy, red and itchy. It is present all over the body. I got these allergies suddenly. I do not remember the cause. I applied a topical analgesic containing Benzyl alcohol with Pramoxine hydrochloride and taken Claritin for allergies. Please suggest.

I have allergies in my whole body, arms, back, and legs.

In most cases, the disease does not go beyond 15 days.
