Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is nearly impossible to predict - it may be inhaled, ingested or contact allergen.
The timing as you say, suggests contact - the washing powder could also be responsible!
Pets, carpets, cleaning air conditioner, food - any thing new in the last few days may account for it.

If you are very particular, a battery of tests are available - but the chances of finding it(them?) and modifying treatment based on it - may not be bright!

Whatever it is, simple anti-histamines will help

Take care
Wishing you speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
