all new to this hive thing... here is my hive time line ...
I have been going to accupuncture (for fertility) and had  accupuncture on wed july 27, he gave me "womens precious herbs" to take I took them on thursday july 28th i only took one dose which was one large dropper full. I had guests for the weekend, i did have a bad headache that weekend took advil on sun and monday only one dose of two advils each day. On tuesday august 2nd I was in the sun and heat of the summer, had one mikes hard lemonade (which I had never had before) and sangria.  The next day on wed aug 3rd I woke up with hives only on my right side, lower hip abdomen and middle of chest, didn't think too much of it, then on thursday i had two mikes hard lemonade (was in the sun) and friday hives were worse I went to the dr. and he thought it could be the mikes since i had never had them before or the herbs as they were something new as well, he said I could just let them take its course or use benadryl and zyrtec. I drank 3 heineken lites that friday night, and a few more on saturday.  I can't say the hives were any better but not any worse they stayed the same (which at this point were all over my right side of body under arm ect.) went to dermatogist she sent me for blood work (waiting for lyme result but liver fine) monday, tues I did zyrtec and benadryl, tuesday I had 4 blue moon beers, wed I noticed hives were alot less continued the zyrtec and benadryl, (i didn't drink in the sun tues) on thursday I decided not to take benadryl as hives were almost gone, had a beer and a glass of wine and on friday no hives and I stopped all meds. I had 5 beers during the day on the beach (7 hours at the beach) saturday i woke up with hives again!!!! could this be a trigger from the chinese herbs that are now causing me to have an allergic reaction to beer and wine? the chinese herbs are 22% alchohol!(I did not know this) .... now other thing is ..... as I mentioned going to accupuncture for fertility... (tho not to convinced it would work) had sex on friday the 29.. broke out in hives wed the 3rd of august .. could this be conception hives????  so any thoughts conception hives, hives from alchohol or dehydration from drinking in the sun? any feed back would be greatly appreciated as I am so freaked out by these hives !

You might have a sun allergy and the alcohol and herbs are triggering it more.
