My eldest gets hives, she's had mild cases of it, usually when she's had a temperature, and then three bad cases where she's needed antihistamines to cope with it.
Is your dd itchy? Because hives itch like mad. My dd suffered badly last summer the hives appeared as an allergic reaction to the Hand Foot and Mouth virus (Took us ages to figure out it's certain viral infections that she is allergic to) and we ended up at the hospital walk in centre because she was scratching herself to pieces. A course of steroids and an antihistamine cleared them up, but the rash was terrible.
If it is hives you can treat them like chicken pox to stop the itching, piriton syrup can help, and if they don't clear up in a couple of days then go back to your gp for more advice.
Oh and have a read of the NHS page on Urticaria http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Nettle-rash/Pages/Introduction.aspx (sorry don't know how to do clicky links) as its quite helpful.
