There are many: questions: first your age, second recent history of fever, illness, any history of contact with allergens, and of course see what the rash actually looks like. My suggestion is that if your rash does not clear in 2 weeks i would see a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. There are many things you may have but most likely if rash resolves it is related to virus or contact. Hope that helps
