Thanks for posting the qwery.
Maculopapular rash can be due to previous drug allergy or viral exanthem etc.
Proper dermatological evaluation is necessary to diagnose the root cause of the rash. It can be also due to some offending allergens or contagious like scabies.
Continue with antiallergic tablets and start proper medications after consultation.
Hope for speedy recovery.
