Little bumps with itchy rashes on forearm, allergic to penicillin. Suggestion?

I have an itchy rash on one wrist only. There are tiny little bumps. Some have scabs and others have a little white. The rash goes from about two inches down on my forearm to just a little above on the outside only. I tend to have allergies: both in spring and summer but not severe. The only thing that I know I am allergic to is penicillin , which gives me a minor skin rash . I have dry skin on my body but not overwhelmingly so.

Tiny little bumps that are itchy is usually cholinergic urticaria, that happens due to change in skin local temperature.
Dry skin can cause you to scratch and itch, and urticaria can appear again.

The best thing is to keep calamine lotion handy that helps with the itch, or a levocetirizine 5mg tablet as and when required.
You will require a tablet for your seasonal allergies at which point youwill notice less of the itch skin rash.

Best Wishes.
