It could be Eczema. I would advise you to avoid itching and leave the area of itching alone for a while. It is nothing serious. If the rash gets worse, you should get an examination by your family doctor. He/she may advise you to use a local application of anti-itching medicine some of which are available over the counter.

Could be hives or even insect bites. See your dermatologist should the condition persist .
