It's quite easy to get an infection from opening the wound. Literally, the rash you are seeing from this allergic reaction is a wound and should be treated properly. Your skin is the first line of defense from infection and opening it up by scratching until raw removes part of that defense.

Keep the rash clean and dry to ward off infection.
