Blood donation has no detrimental effect, so be cool. I feel you may be having some allergy. You may be having atopic diathesis. There may be some cause.
The cause may be contactants or inhalants. Allergen would be dust, grass, soap,
Pollen or something else. Some drug may be the cause.
Even oral factor also can cause this type of rash..eggs,prawns,fish,nuts or cows milk..etc

Do not be anxious, even stress can exacerbate the allergic dermatitis.
Oral anti histaminics and steroids in tappering dose may be taken. Application of mild steroid cream might improve the condition.

You may be improved.
I hope you got my answer.
