In brief: Usually histamine

Histamine causes redness, itching, pain, swelling, the common skin manifestations of an "allergic reaction".

In brief: Damage to skin.

An allergic reaction causes release of specialized white blood cells which cause inflammation and may even attack the skin causing a rash.
It is important to identify the allergen, avoid it, and treat the rash.
