Bash My Rash

YANAD or maybe your are. I have a mysterious rash / itchy thing going on. Add in that my wife is due with our second child in five days. Two nights ago I woke up several times during the night scratching my pubic area. That morning I put some hydrocortizone on it and thought that was that. Since then, I have been itching all over in random spots.

At first my scalp was itching like crazy. This morning it was my face. And through out it has been my hands. Right now, on my hands, I see a 2 inch collection of tiny red dots. It kind of looks like this
although not as raised or as big. They are not really raised. I am also seeing random red splotches on my palms which come and go. If I wait 20 minutes, those collections of little red dots will disappear and move to another part of my hand or arm. I have taken some claritin / benadril but I can't really tell if it is helping. The only things that changed in my environment was I just went off a dose of Augmentin and just had some Activia yogurt for the first time a few days ago. I feel fine. Just itchy. What gives? To complicate matters, as mentioned above, my wife is having a scheduled C-section in 5 days. Am I just having an allergic reaction? Should I head to the doctor? Is my baby in danger if I am in the delivery room? I will not have access to a dermatologist in the next several weeks. Help me scratch this.
