This : This is difficult to answer without a clinical examination, but typically a drug rash can linger for a little while. I would see a dermatologist to be sure the diagnosis is correct and they can possibly prescribe some topical steroids and possible oral therapies such as antihistamines/oral steroids or other appropriate treatments to help you. Does your rash kind of look like the rash below? I hope that helps a little!
