Hi,
      Hives can appear due to allergy to food, dust, animals or any item that can cause hypersensitivity or they can also appear out of no reason. Hives usually last 24 hours but can stay for days to weeks. It is important to see a dermatologist for confirmation of diagnosis. Treatment is with antihistamines, corticosteroids or immunomodulators. Hope this helps. Best.
