That sounds exactly like hives to me. It's probably an allergic reaction to something you are using while you bathe. Look for a soap that is formulated for sensitive, allergy prone skin. Also, I had a couple of friends who broke out into hives every time they bathed, no matter what soap they used. For one of them, it turned out that he never did a very good job of rinsing out the chemicals he used to clean his bath with, and every time he took a bath, those chemicals would irritate his skin. For the other one, the heat from the bath water made his skin inflamed. In both cases, taking short showers instead of long-baths fixed the problem.

Do you take hot showers? If so, it could be a histamine reaction to increased body temperature. Or, if you are using products with sulfates, it could be an allergy to sulfates.
