How long does an allergic reaction rash from echinacea last?

A few days: Rashes from something you ingest typically last for just a few days or less. The bigger question is what really caused the rash.

Dx'd with allergic reaction by leg incision 4 wk postop. Rash - red, raised, dry, itchy. Steroid cream 2x day, covered leg in brace. How long last?
