What is the itchy rash I have developed on my skin?

I have just been told that the cat I was caring for had severe scabies, I developed an itchy rash in the last four days, but I also remember not feeling well and having a low temperature before the rash developed. I am aware that scabies from a cat cannot be passed to a human, so am curious what this itch rash is.

Hi
This could be an allergic reaction so you can try benadryl or Claritin but you should see a doctor for this
