Is there anything I can get from the grocery store or drug store for my rash until I can see a doctor?

In brief: Maybe
A painful rash could be due to infection, allergy, insect sting or bite, trauma, burn, and many other possibilities including a reaction to creams, salves, or lotions that you may have already tried.
What you need more than anything is an accurate diagnosis. Anything you try from the store will be a gamble and may delay your ultimate treatment. Please see you doctor!
