Is there an antihistamine cream?

Yes, but avoid: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream is available. While some people find temporary relief for insect bites with this, in general it is not very effective compared to other antihistamines taken as pills or tabs. For generalized rash, it really doesn't make sense.
