Insects, Allergy: Allergy to food, infectious mites, perfume, cologne, shaving lotion, air purifiers to name a few.

Histamine: Your body makes histamine and this causes the rash after you are itching. It is released as a signal to the body. You see red. The body is increasing blood flow to mount a response to help. It usually quickly fades.
