This sounds like Dermographism or Demographic Urticaria due to sensitive skin. The way forward is to resist the temptation to rub or scratch the skin as this makes the condition worse. It settles so quickly that antihistamines are unlikely to be helpful. Keeping the skin well moisturised with an emollient cream will help.
