Rashes appeared all over body. What treatment should be done?

My daughter got a rash about 2 years ago, and I believe the same type of rash is coming again. I remember that this was possible, but I can not remember what the name of it was. It started with a oval scaly spot on her back, and then other smaller rash spots appeared on her stomach , chest ,arms, and at the end her face. It went away on its own, and there is no treatment for it, but I would like to know the name of it and read up on it again. Do you have any idea?

With the description you have given, it seems your daughter is having Pityriasis rosea. It is a self resolving skin condition that takes few weeks to resolve. Usually it is symptomless, however sometimes it might present with little itching. In that case a soothing calamine lotion can be used along with oral cetirizine. Hope that solves your query.
