You can purchase anti-itch medication for bug bites at the same location your purchase bug sprays and lotions. It will cause ease for your itching bug bites. Re apply it as needed until your bug bites no longer itch. Next time you get near bugs try bug spray or lotion to prevent bites.

You should consult a doctor to have it checked out. You could be allergic to something you ate or that your skin came in contact with over the last couple of days.

A rash that itches could be poison ivy or poison oak. Were you running or walking through a small forest or some tall grass? Poison oak, Poison ivy, and a few other ground plants can cause skin irritation.

It could be poison ivy, or a host of other things. You can try applying calamine lotion to it, which will dry it out and stop most of the itching. See a doctor if it doesn't go away.

There are many causes for rashes. If you've walked in overgrown areas you may have been exposed to poison ivy. Could you be reacting to new socks or boots? Do you have carpeting and pets? If so you may have flea bites. Have you been wading in a lake where ducks swim? Then you may have a bacterial infection.
