Thanks for writing your query.

It will be helpful if you give more information on :-
1. Duration of your rash?
2. Any use of new cosmetic?

After reading your post, it seems that the cause of your rash is allergic.
You should wash the affected area with clean water.

You should go to the Emergency Department for clinical examination.
Steroid injection will be beneficial.
You can take antihistaminic like Fexofenadine 180 mg once a day for relief.
If the problem persists, get yourself clinically examined by a Dermatologist.

I hope this is helpful to you.
If you have any further query,I will be happy to help.
