Suggest treatment for itchy rashes on head and sternum

A few years back (about 5 or years ago), I was deployed to Kyrgyzstan and came in contact with something that caused a server allergic reaction. I was treated for the flu while in country, because of the sneezing, and cough. I had some stiffness and low fever. When I returned home, those symptoms were still present, but I began to have itching, rash, whelp and swelling of my airway. I was treated for over 18 months before the reaction was stopped. Since that time, I sneeze numerous times every morning and if I do anything that causes sweat, I breakout in a rash in my under breast area and head which itches intensely. I have an EpiPen that I keep with me. With at background, my question is what can I do to reduce or control the rash and itching. With summer approaching I will have more sweating, as I live in the southeast.

HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, such symptoms could be due to allergic condition and this is nothing to worry because most of the time such symptoms are self limiting, but some time this can be well treated if this does not comes to normal, and the best medicine will be "Tab Levocetirizine 10 mg three times in day, hope this information helps, take care.
