Hi,
Thanks for writing in.
The rash you are describing can be herpes zoster,insect bite contact dermatitis etc.
Keep the area clean and dry.You can keep saline dressing over the part.

You can apply calamine lotion over the area.Also you can take tab Zyrtec for itching.

Visit a qualified dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.


Hope this helps.
