Itching in scalp and red spots on face and palms, with burning sensation. Solution?

My scalp starting itching mid -day yesterday. A bit of a burn too. I did not change my routine or soaps, etc. I didn t even go outside. Now I have these red spots on my face, hands legs too. My palms started itching this morning. And they feel like they re burning. A couple of the spots on my head looked like small pimples , but the rest looks like red swollen skin. I can t stand to wear me glasses because it s behind my ears too. What can this be and how do I get rid of it?

Hi, thanks for posting your query
With above information it is not exactly clear to what it may be

Sudden appearance of these rashes can be acute allergic reaction due to Food or contact with some allergic agent
IT may also occur in case of fever and viral infection
I suggest you to contact doctor to know the cause

You can take this symptomatic treatment:
anti histaminic like fexofenadine,or citrizine
a short course of tapering dose of prednisolone
local application of calamine mixed with essential oil
It should be analysed as early as possible
Hope this helps you
