does severe itching on the arms when scratching reddish skin lesions about pencil erasure, pimple sized appear all over sound like rash of ARS? It happens about 3 weeks after a brief tongue-tongue kissing with someone. After taking Benadryl it subsided then started it again several hours later. I used a new lotion on my arms shortly before the rash but not sure what is related to? It's been persisting for few days no sign of disappearance. It's itching really bad. I also had a mild sore throat and swollen lymph nodes (something I used to have) in the neck for a day or two, a week after the kissing. One hot flush at night sweat my neck before the rash. Besides seeing a doctor, do these sound like ARS symptoms?

Thank you very much.
