Red itchy bumps on neck, face, arm, rash spreading to chest, stomach. Rubella or allergy?

I am having red itchy bumps on my neck, face, and right right arm which started two days ago. I have taken loratadine yesterday once, and had taken the same medication once today as well. The rash has now spread to my chest, and belly. I also have sore throat just earlier this morning. Could this still be considered an allergy? Or can this be Rubeola or Rubella?
