Reddish blotchy rashes with itching on the face after taking shower. Not responding to telfast. Any suggestions?

Hi I have no apparent rash on my skin but when I seem to get hot my skin becomes really itchy and when I scratch it it brings up a red blotchy uncomfortable and emabarassing rash, I get red blotches on my face, I notice it more when I take a shower, first thing in the morning and last thing at night. My doctor prescribed telfast but they are not helping

Welcome to health care magic
You are having Physical urticaria, due to hot water bath. The temperature of the water is the culprit. The best treatment will be to avoid hot water bath. You may try a different anti histamine like Levocetrizine 5mg once a day.
Hope this helped
Take care
