I cannot confirm anything without examination,but it can be due to hives. Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. They have a tendency to change size rapidly and to move around, disappearing in one place and reappearing in other places, often in a matter of hours.
Many cases of hives are "idiopathic," meaning no cause is known. Others may be triggered by viral infections or medications.When hives appear the next time,take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin.Also apply calamine lotion or mile steroid cream on the rashes.
If they persist then pls get them evaluated from a ermatologist.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.
