Unfortunately, I can't give you a definite answer but the normal timeframe is 10 to 14 days. For some people, if they haven't had a reaction in many years the body "forgets" that its allergic and any subsequent reaction seems like the first time and may take longer to heal.

You can help speed up the process by keeping the rash clean and dry and try not to scratch.
