Could be drug allerg: Drug allergies are a common cause of an itching rash. If you are taking any new medicines lately added, stop it for a couple of days. In the meantime, you can use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) once or twice a day...It might help reduce the allergy. But it can also make you sleepy, so take it at night and see if it helps. ...Read more

It's also possible that you are having a phototoxic reaction. That's a reaction of your skin to sunlight when you are on certain medications. Things like birth control, even NSAID's can cause this type of reaction. ...Read more
