Dear Ms

Thanks for providing the clinical photograph. The rash is urticarial rash . It could have resulted from allergic reaction , many of the times its difficult to find out the allergic material causing the reaction.

I would suggest you the following

1. Oral antihistamine like Cetirizine of Chlorpheniramine maleate will be helpful

2. Local application of calamine lotion will be helpful to relieve the itching

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you

Take Care
