Is it unusual for a rash due to a food allergy last for several weeks?

In brief: No

Some skin reactions due to food allergy can last for weeks, especially if you are still being exposed to the food.
However other things can cause long lasting rashes. I recommend being evaluated by an allergist or dermatologist.
