Skin rash burning or stinging sensation

I have skin rash on my upper back for last 1 week, when itchy, could not resist to scratch(usually at night). then feel stinging or burning sensation during the day. Used calamine lotion, but did not help. the rashes are reddish color and when dried its black on top.
Please somebody help me. I am going to be mad...

Hi,
This could be  a case of hives.Hives is an allergic skin reaction causing localized redness, swelling, and itching.An attack of hives is set off when such a substance, called an allergen, is ingested, inhaled, or otherwise contacted.
A wide variety of substances may cause hives in sensitive people, including foods, drugs, and insect bites or stings. Common culprits include:nuts, especially peanuts, walnuts, and Brazil nuts,fish, mollusks and shellfish ,eggs ,,wheat and milk .
You can  treat it  with antihistamines, such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl).Also cotinue to apply calamine lotion.
If you can figure out what set this off and avoid it , the rash will be gone.The black marks will be a result of scratch marks.

Thanks for your suggestion. Does benadryl has any side-effect that can harm baby during pregnancy?

Thanks again
