Red itchy rashes on back. Hands, feet, thighs have burning sensation. Pinched nerve?

I started getting rashes -red in color and in short horizontal lines on my back, mostly on my right side. the rashes come for no reason, but go away inan hour or so. Someimes they itch and burn . My hands, feet and thighs alos have some burning sensation sometimes. I checked mu sugar and it was less than 120. I took advil this morning, and so far no rashes, no burning or itching. Could this be a pinched nerve?

Hi, it appears to be an urticarial rash but its unilateral appearance suggests some other cause.
I would suggest you to take levocetrizine 5 mg daily for 10 days and then look for recurrance
if it occurs again investigations are required.
take care
