Levantar ampollas
 
Quick research indicates that this means to efuriate. Is it a common term? Also, a similar term dar rabia is very common among Latin Americans I know. Is it commonly used in Spain?

I take it you mean enfuriate :) My dictionary suggests to get somebody's back up, which doesn't seem quite as strong.

It´s widely used in Spain:

La subida de impuestos del govierno, levantó ampollas.

Ronchas, ampollas ... ¿se puede usar urticaria en algunos dichos?

A veces, cuando alguien no te cae bien, dices que te produce urticaria. :D

Si, Como te dijo irma.

En todo caso urticaria da picazón, which is very annoying.
