plaquenil rash?

Just dx with RA last month, started on plaquenil, and now 1 mo later I reacted to it with a rash. So stopped taking plaquenil, and now waiting for rash to go away before trying another med. Of course, dealing with the rash on top of the daily pain to hands/wrists/feet of the RA itself. Benadryl is not working anymore to help with the itching! Has anyone had a rash reaction, how long did it last, and any tips for soothing the itch? THanks!
