My daughter has developed some type of rash about 2 nights

This answer was rated:

My daughter has developed some type of rash about 2 nights ago on her wrists then by morning it was gone. Again last night she developed a rash of some sort on both her sides back and belly. Gave her some Benadryl and by morning was mostly gone. And now is pretty much gone from those spots but now it is on her arms neck and legs and her face?
JA: The Doctor can help. Just a couple quick questions before I transfer you. When did your daughter start using Benadryl? How severe were any side effects?
Customer: last night she had Benadryl I don’t know what side affects I don’t think any from the Benadryl I’m worried about the rash
JA: Has she seen a doctor about the rash?
Customer: no all clinics are closed in our area due to the covid-19 and I really want to avoid the ER if possible
JA: Anything else in her medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: no she’s fairly healthy otherwise

Hello

Thanks for your reply. I am just reviewing the pictures.

Please give me a moment

she seems to be having urticaria. its also called hives.

its a condition where there are red raised lesions all over the body with lot of itching.

these lesions are of various sizes and shapes and they come and go on their own. they need prompt treatment.

urticaria may be idiopathic or may have a variety of causative factors, there is a n exhaustive list available but to tell you the truth its really difficult to pin point one thing.

the best thing to do is to start prompt treatment for immediate relief.

tablet fexofenadine 30 mg orally twice a day is the medicine I would recommend for atleast 10- 14 days.

she can apply calamine lotion on the rash to soothe it. twice a day till there is a rash

urticaria can be caused by foods, medications, pollen, house dust etc.

avoiding fish, milk, nuts for 15 days would be a good idea and see if it further helps her

 

please feel free to ask me in case you have any queries.
