The rash could be due to contact dermatitis, that is exposure to an irritant like a chemical or metal or anything you are allergic to, it can cause rash. The aim of the therapy is identification and removal of trigger factor. It is the most important and the only effective long-term therapy. An allergy specialist can help identify the allergens and desensitize you.
Local measures like ice packs and antipruritic lotions are helpful.
Antihistamines block the histamine receptors and prevent histamine from acting and thus help in preventing rashes.
