Researchers think allergy is caused by both genes and environment. Allergies can cause runny nose, itchy skin, rashes, swelling or asthma. Allergies makes one feel bad but they do not harm your life. However, severe reaction anaphylaxis is dangerous. There are numerous itchy skin allergies and rashes. Though, all of them are not related skin allergy.

The rash of atopic dermatitis is often known as eczema; it occurs where the person scratches. In kids, rash occur within the reach of child, where s/he can scratch like chest, cheeks and scalp. Elder people or adults develop scratches on the skin fold of elbows and behind the knees, it may also occur on the face, hand, neck and feet. The rashes are usually red or flakes or oozes and has small blister and bumps. Scratching causes excoriation and broken skin.

Urticaria is another type of allergy, it is very well known as hives. These are often itchy rash that can occur at any age. This rash appears like raised red bumps of various types, shapes and size and typically lasts for a minute or few hours. Though they are very itch, a person should not scratch to the point of breaking the skin and cause bleeding. The swelling that sometimes developed along with Urticaria is called angioedema; it involves the lips, the eyes, the hands and feet. Angioedema is certainly not itchy, it rather cause burning sensation, tingling or sting. Severe swelling that blocks the breathing can be dangerous to life.

It is common to have itching without any ashes or allergy. The biological term for itching is pruritus; this can be the sign of medical problem or internal disease. If the itching is limited to certain area of the body that reflects that disease is restricted to the limited to skin only.

Most rashes are not dangerous but some of them cause danger to life if they are part of an infectious disease such as chickenpox.
