Pityriasis rosea: This is one of the possibilities which affects the torso, may not itch. Ot would develop over a few days. It resolves in about 8 weeks and is a reaction to a mild infection which has already resolved. Treat, net can lighten the marks but not speed up the process.If it persists see doctor for confirmation.

Dr. Christian Dyhianto

Yes: A rash from a strep infection can be itchy, especially when you have dry sensitive skin. You can develop a rash from a strep throat infection (scarlet fever), or from an actual strep infection on the skin (impetigo). The former is treated with oral antibiotics, while the latter is topical antibiotics. Consult with your doctor.
