In brief: Allergic reaction?

Itchy rashes are usually allergic reactions, but sometimes are from skin infections.
Many people find that hydrocortisone cream helps, plus taking an antihistamine pill (allergy medicine). People who have a history of eczema can have itchy rashes appear off and on. Sometimes there are skin infections like folliculitis, pimples, impetigo, etc... A doctor can evaluate to see what it all might be.
