     You might try a cortisone cream - http://www.wisegeekhealth.com/what-is-cortisone-cream.htm
      but the idea that it is an allergic response is very possible.   Change  your laundry soaps.   The location of the rashes should help you figure out if it is something that is contacting the area.   Kind of wondered about your sheets?   Bed bugs certainly would be possible.  Do you sleep on your back and side?   Bed bugs are  not easy to get rid of.  Google it and follow the recommedations.  Good luck1
