Part of acting is to focus on what is said and done and push all distractions aside, including your rash. As long as you're talking about a high school play and not a professional play, you're good, because in high school, they focus more on talent, while professional plays focus on talent, experience, and appearance.
It also depends on what make up company you're using OP. My drama club uses Ben Nye, and we have never had a problem with rashes. The most "rash" related thing would be acne break outs if the skin wasn't properly cleaned afterwards. You might want to look into Ben Nye if you haven tried it already.
I get bad allergies twice a year, still don't know what from. I will get rashes and swelling. In addition to benedryl, my doc gives me a steroid shot with a pack of steroids to follow up with. It's either a 5 or 7 day course, I can't remember. Kind of like a z pack for steroids instead of antibiotics. Works like a dream. The shot usually has most visible symptoms cleared within 24 hours. I also have a lot of pain when allergic reactions kick in from the unknown autoimmune thing I have going on. Midway through the pack, the pain is gone. Worth asking about. And see if you can find some hypoallergenic make up or makeup that at least doesn't contain what you are having the reaction to. I'm sure you thought of that part already, but its worth mentioning just in case. Gl.
Just audition for the part of the half dead zombie. Problem solved.
Hmm.. I was a little to quick to assume OP was a girl xD
