Hello,
From the symptoms it can be atopic dermatitis, allergic, viral rashes or eczema skin. Give some antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin and wear cotton clothes. You can also apply calamine lotion on the rash. It will help in soothing the skin. A mild corticosteroid cream will also help but it should be used under a dermatologist’s guidance.
If the symptoms persist then please get an evaluation done from a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
