Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern.

You may take an oral antihistamine e.g tab cetrizine 10mg once daily for symptomatic relief from itching. In addition you may apply a soothing lotion e.g Calamine lotion for the rash.
Let me know details of symptoms and upload photo of rash so that I am better able to help.
