Brief Answer:
hi

Detailed Answer:
Yes, it is used for allergic reactions and this is more efficient medicine than benadryl. If this rash is caused by allergy then it should work within 3 days and some results should be seen. If there is no improvement, then it may be nonallergic type of rash and you should see dermatologist and do skin biopsy.
