Welcome and thanks for posting your query to Healthcare Magic.

After reading your query thoroughly it appears the closest possibility of " Recurrent Vasculitis".

This is a condition caused by inflammation of the small blood vessels in the skin. This can be triggered by multiple factors. As the inflammation progresses it causes the kind of rash which you mentioned. There can be multiple factors producing this condition which are included in day to day life and some times it is really difficult to find one exact cause.

For the betterment kindly follow the suggestions below:

-Apply over the counter calamine lotion 3-4 times a day.
-You can do cold water compresses to reduce the intensity of itching.
-Do not scratch or rub the skin as it can lead to further aggravation.
-You can take oral anti histamine like loratadine or levocetrizine under medial advise.
- For the pain part you can take any pain killer round the clock basis.

Despite above measures if the problem is not getting better then it is better to consult a dermatologist for best guidance.

Hope these informations will help.

"With good health wishes"
