Sudden rash and swelling on arms, hands, and face

I woke up two days ago with a sudden rash on my forearms and a little on my face. It looked like bug bites, so I thought maybe I had spider mites or something. I changed my sheets last night, and then this morning, I woke up with my hands being incredibly itchy (palms and the back of my hands) and slightly swollen and the rash on my forearms and face.

I haven't changed laundry detergent. I'm a 23 year old woman. I haven't changed my diet besides the fact that I have been eating less since my boyfriend and I just broke up and he's moving out and it's created a lot of stress...Besides the additional emotional stress, nothing is different.

What is causing this rash and itchiness and what can I do to make it go away?
