Thank you for your query,
For scratchin, just apply calamine lotion externally twice or thrice daily.
If the itching is more you can give oral antihistamine like hydroxyzine or cetirizine in prescribed dosage.
Consult the Dermatologist for the accurate diagnosis for the rash and for the appropriate specific treatment.
Hope I have answered your query.
