Based on the limited history, it sounds as if you may have urticaria (hives). There are a number of causes for hives, most often some type of allergic reaction.

I would suggest seeing your doctor to determine the cause of this rash. You can try one of the over-the-counter antihistamines such as Benadryl, Zyrtec, Claritin or Alavert to help with the itching.

You should be seen immediately if your rash is associated with any trouble breathing, difficulty swallowing or progressive itch/swelling.
