Brief Answer:
Oral antihistamine

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern.

Perhaps she has 'Hives'.
I suggest her to take an OTC oral antihistamine e.g Cetrizine 10mg once a day (evening).
Topically she may use a soothing lotion e.g Calamine lotion.
