Hives - soooo itchy!

So for an unknown reason I've come up in big, itchy hives on the right side of my body. The only possible cause I can think of is stress. They are absolutely doing my head in and I'm fantasising about scratching them with sandpaper.

I've been to the chemist today. I've tried an anti histamine, I've tried hydrocortisone cream and I've tried germolene to no success. I've not tried lanacane as ironically one main side effect is, err, hives grin .

Can anyone recommend anything that might help please?
