Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

See a dermatologist: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

My symptoms are night sweating and itchy skin. Also inability to concentrate, and irritability. Can you tell me what this means?

Restless: There are many possibilities. Without a good history and physical, medications used, allergies, drugs, etc, it would be shooting in the dark. The constellation of symptoms you describe could be explained by hyperthyroidism, or etoh / sedative hypnotic withdrawal, opiate withdrawal, or an autoimmune or allergic reaction. Best to see your md for a thorough exam and laboratory testing.
