Itchy rash: This itchy rash may be an allergic reaction to something external like clothing,detergents,cosmetics or something internal like medications,foods. I assume insect bites or poison ivy,etc are not the cause. Try taking an antihistamine by mouth and apply corticosteroid ointment. If no improvement or more involvement, see your physician for evaluation and advice.
