Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You could be having reaction to something you ate or probably allergic to. You should maintain proper hygiene. Take bath regularly. Avoid sun exposure. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. If the rashes become infected you may apply antibiotic ointment for relief. It would be best to get investigated by your Dermatologist to find the cause and management of your problem.
