It depends: Atarax is a short acting anti-histamine or anti-itch medication. It also makes you drowsy. How long does your skin rashes last depending on what type of skin rashes that is and what specific treatment for that rashes. It would work well for hives although a longer acting anti-histamine like Allegra / Claritin (loratadine) / zyrtec is preferable. If it lasts more than 6 weeks, you should go see an allergist.
