Bumpy red rash, itchy at night...?

Hello all

I've got a bumpy red rash on my left and right upper arms. It appeared on Saturday night and has gotten worse this week. It's only really itchy at night time but can be a little itchy sometimes during the day. I woke up in the middle of the night last night to find I'd actually been scratching away in my sleep and have managed to even cut myself where I'd been scratching so hard. I used to get rashes a lot when I worked in a really dusty environment and I've always had very sensitive skin but I no longer work around that much dust and haven't used any new products or changed washing powder etc. I have been under a lot of stress lately at work and with illness in the family so wonder if it could be something to do with that? Either way, I've been applying Eurax every night to try and sooth the itching but it's not helping much. It doesn't seem to be spreading, although one day I'll wake up and it'll look a little better and then the next I'll wake up and it'll look a little worse. Any advice? I'm not good at dealing with things like rashes - starting to go a little

If I got it right, there should be a picture attached

Thanks!
