Itchy and dry neck rash. How do I treat it?

Customer Question

Neck rash. Very itchy and very dry. Came after an allergic reaction to penicillin. It has been there for 2 weeks. I applied tea tree oil which helps with the dryness and reduces the itching a bit. It is not spreading and no open sores.

I think it may be hives but I can't be certain.

The lesion on the picture is likely from urticaria. You can take over the counter cetirizine once a day for the itchiness. The symptoms will improve in the next couple of days. If the symptoms don't improve you should see your PCP for a full assessment. Fungal infections and atypical dermatitis can also cause the same problem.
