I'm sorry I don't know how to except you can use calamine lotion for the pain and itching. If you're itchy that's a good thing to look into because if you scratch them they'll leave a scar.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful,

I break out in hives from allergies and I find the Aveeno works wonders! My MIL also has scarlet fever atm and I got her some and she loves it too. It's great stuff!
