Rashes on many parts of body, like raised pimples. Itchy on elbows. What are they?

My daughter broke out in a rash two days ago. It is behind her ears and on her chest . It is also lower on her torso although it is not as severe there....just kind of here and there. I have treated her with benadryl , but it doesn t seem to be helping. She also has it on the inside of her elbows. It is only itchy on her elbows. It looks like small raised pimples .

Hi ..thanks for your query.
You have not mentioned the age of your daughter. There can be many possibilities .
It can be a scabies infestation. This is common in children.itching is mostly severe in the night.topical permethrin is used in the treatment.
Next common possibilty is papular urticaria. This is a allergic reaction to insect bites like mosquitoes. Topical sterois are used fir the treatment.
Other contact allergies or acute urticaria is also possible.
I suggest you visit a dermatologist to get a proper diagnosis and then start the definitive therapy.
Hope this helps. Take care!
