Brief Answer: contact allergy Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query. sand paper like rash usually appears in contact allergy. I would like to see a photograph of the rash. This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis. Take an anti histamine tablet like cetrizine and apply a mild steroid like hydrocortisone cream. This will give you immediate relief. Please upload a photograph. Waiting for your response. Thank you
