Apparently, this is NOT an allergic rash per se, but a toxic reaction to a protein, so cortisone and benadryl are not very helpful. Literature suggests that it usually clears up in two weeks. As always, be on watch for severe type symptoms, i.e. difficulty breathing, irregular heart beat/rate, etc. but these are unlikely. Also, scabies will show up with a very similar rash. Best to see a dermatologist for an accurate dx.
