Two possibilities are coming to my mind after reading your post.Firstly,it can be a rash due to contact dermatitis to poison ivy. Symptoms include redness and itching of the skin, development of rash and sometimes development of blisters from rash.
Once it begins, the rash will usually clear on its own by 14-21 days. Treatment is directed at controlling the itching. You may take oral antihistaminics like benadryl or zyrtec.Also apply calamine lotion as it has a soothing effect on the skin. You can apply OTC steroid cream but it is only helpful if applied right away, before blisters appear, or much later, when the blisters have dried up. Compresses with cool water or Burrow’s solution (available without prescription) can help dry the ooze faster.
Severe cases like extensive blistering and when rashes are present on the face may need oral steroids. But they are available only on prescription. So if the symptoms become severe then pls consult a dermatologist.
Second possibility is of lyme,s disease.It is caused by bite of a tick carrying borrelia bacteria.Treatment is by antibiotics.
