    sunlover51,   You don't say how long you have had them, but yes, hives can last for several days.  I know it has been a while since you posted, but how long did they last?  Did you ever find any relief?  As other community members have said, allergies to shellfish can be very serioues, and shellfish are hidden in a lot of foods.  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you here, so I would suggest that you check in with your physician if it happens again or if they persist.   If you did find some relief, please return to let us know how you are doing and how long they lasted.   Best of luck!
