Customer: replied 7 years ago.
He's not having any symptoms. We were at the beach saturday but I used spf 55 on him. He is not sun burned, and all of this didn't show up until last night.

His symptoms indicate an allergic reaction. This can be due to any insect bite (sand bugs), skin cream, new food ingredient, viral infection. Continue with Benadryl for now, and apply Calamine lotion over the rash till the rash resolves. It usually takes 2-3 days for the allergic skin rash to completely resolve.
