About how long does it take a rash due to allergic reactions to cats to heal?

In brief: Hours to days

If the rash you have is from a recent and brief exposure, if you have some topical benedryl cream, it should resolve relatively quickly.
If you have had prolonged exposure, you might need to add a topical steroid for relief. This might take a couple of days. Finally, if the rash is infected, see your doctor as that might not heal on its own.
