Possible: The description of the rash is most consistent with hives, which notoriously can be induced by a wide variety of triggers; including infection. It is not a typical sign of severe or systemic strep infection, however. OTC second-generation antihistamines are often the first step in treating new onset hives.

Probably not.: See a Dr, preferably a dermatologist.
