I've gotten hives from acidic foods and scented lotions/skin products my entire life that would cover my entire body and usually last around 3 weeks and although I have tried everything. Claritan used to carry Claritan Hives which worked the best but they discontinued its production. And yes tempid oatmeal baths and staying cool helps. However I have found that soaking in the ocean or a pool nearly eliminated my hives within 1-2 days. There is something about the cold water combined with the salt or chlorine that completely sucks all the toxins out of my welts and they stop itching for hours and after usually 2 soaks they are completely gone. I highly recomend everyone try it. DO NOT SOAK IN THE HOT TUB, the heat makes them far more irritated.
