Hi, a couple of days ago I noticed a rash

Patient : Hi, a couple of days ago I noticed a rash spreading from my ear. It is all red and particularly itchy in the inner part. The rash goes all the way to the back of my ear where there are a couple small red bumps. I fear the bumps may spread to my face since it is beginning to get close. What is this rash and how can I prevent it from getting any worse? I have a picture also.
