Coronavirus and hives

I have the corona virus My husband is in the ICU on a vent. I did not get a very severe case. Just a couple of days of fever body aches and cough. What is weird is on about the fourth fifth and sixth day I developed hives with particular heat to my palms and the tops of my ear lobes. Could this be my immune system revving up in response to the virus?

Yes, urticaria is often triggered by viral infections and just a manifestation of the bodies immune system "revving up".  I hope you and your husband make a speedy recovery from the Corona virus.
