In brief: Other symptoms
It depends on whether other symptoms are present.
With an allergic reaction, itching is a prominent component. The rash may appear as raised red welts or hives, and typically the rash comes and goes. With a heat-related reaction, the rash is usually flat and red with little or no itching.
