In brief: Hives
Stop flagyl.
Take benadryl (diphenhydramine). Avoid hot water, do not scratch. Use cetaphil cream. If have severe and diffuse hive, then doctor may suggest a bit of steroid pills or injection.

In brief: Time, antihistamines
The rash that comes from exposure to drugs should go away with time.
Antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) might help with symptoms, but might also cause drowsiness.
