Hello,
A clinical examination is necessary for correct diagnosis and treatment. The commonest possible cause of this rash is an allergic reaction. This allergic rash can be due to any soaps, foods eaten, deodorants, perfumes etc.Other possibilities are sun burn, prickly heat rash, eczema or actinitic keratosis. Prolonged sun exposure may lead to small, rough, red raised areas on the skin called actinitic keratosis.Take an antihistamine like hydroxyzine for relief in itching. Application of calamine lotion may provide some soothing effect. If the symptoms are severe or persistent it is best to see a dermatologist.
Take care and regards!
