you could be experiencing a food allergy. These typically cause red itchy hives to spread all throughout your body for 12-24 hours. If the problems go away, then you're fine, if not, see a dermatologist at your earliest convinence. In the meantime, try using some type of lotion that can provide itching relief since it can be bothersome.

Have you used any new cream , shower gel, different materials in clothing, underwear ?  Have you been outside in the sun , near any allergens like cactus plants ?
