Hi Doc. My 4 year old grand daughter woke up with this rash. My dauhter gave her children benadryl and it went down a bit. She thinks it was from a public pool that she was in yesterday. Any thoughts on this?

This is Dr. David

that is good the benadryl helped.

viral infections from another child from going back to school often can cause low grade fevers and rash like this.

if the rash gets itchy, she can use bendryl cream or hydrocortisone cream 1% on the area

make sure she washes her hands frequently while at school.
