In brief: Depends on the cause

There are many types and causes of skin rashes that could cause itching.
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.

In brief: See dermatologist...

...And find out what it is.
The best way to keep it from spreading all over is to get a specific diagnosis and treatment. Trying various otc remedies would just be shooting in the dark.
