Allergy: This is likely an allergy to something. Could be a medication, a food, or something in the air such as mold or pollen.. Take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Zyrtec to help itching. If no better in a day or 2, we your doctor. If you develop trouble swallowing or breathing, go to Emergency Room. Good luck!
