What is the remedy for hives and rash aftewr a cat bite?

I got bit by a cat in the nose which shed blood. I then took antibiotics for six days. On the sixth day I broke out in hives and rash. This lasted for three weeks and it is now flaring up again. I also have had herpes 1. Could this be due to an out break if its all over my body?

Take first dose of rabipur. inj tetanus toxoid one dose Asusual take second dose of rabipur on fourth day. If upto now the cat remains healthy with signs of rabies, you can discontinue rabipur or else continue with full course of rabipur,
