How did I suddenly get an itchy rash? Are all sudden itchy rashes allergic in nature?

In brief: Rashes
Most allergic rashes are itchy however, not all itchy rashes are allergic.
A good example is scabies that is cause by an arthroppod (insect) that tunnels beneath the skin. Ask your primary care provider to evaluate the rash first, seek a dermatologists opinion if the pcp can not determine the cause.
