Hives can come and go- but to tell for sure what the cause of this rash is, you need to have a doctor take a look at it and gather more of your medical history.  It could also be something like a heat rash or allergy to something- you could try things like changing up your laundry detergent, wearing lose fitting clothing- but your best bet for the fastest resolution is to have a doctor involved.
