Came out in a rash, rash has been there for a week. It’s itchy.

Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA.

Thank you for the question. I will be answering your query shortly.

I understand your concern.

Is the rash getting worse?

Are there any other symptoms like fever?

No fever
Not getting worse but doesn’t seem to be going away

You can apply small amounts of Hydrocortisone cream 1 percent once daily over this to make it go away earlier. That will take care of the itching as well. In addition you can take Tablet Cetrizine 10 mg once daily for a week. It will eventually settle down but can take some extra time in few cases.
