In brief: Agree w Dr. Rafat.

These lesions need to be visualized & a history needs to be obtained in order to make an accurate diagnosis.
Sometimes lab testing or biopsy is necessary.

In brief: Depends on the cause

There are many things that could cause the skin to itch.
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.
