It is impossible to tell you what is causing this without being able to see the rash. It could be condition called urticaria. Try Allergex tablets 4mg twice daily. If the rash does not clear up please see your doctor.

I also had something simular while I was pregnant. I spent hundreds on specialist advice & was just told to leave as it will dissappear after a while & it did.
