Thanks for writing in.

Before I give you a concrete advice, I need you to answer the following questions..

Is the rash itchy?

Does she have any fever or bodyache?

Is there an allergic background (self or family).

I am thinking more in lines of urticaria and angioedema than viral rash or chicken pox.

Can you also, please attach a pic of the rash and eye swelling. It is very important to have a look on the lesion to be sure of the diagnosis.

Till then you may use Calamine lotion 2-3 times daily and antiallergic syrup as required.

Awaiting your response
