Posted on Mon, 23 Oct 2017
Question: Good Morning. My daughter is 12. She has a very red rash with bumps behind both ears. Her torso and neck are also affected. Her face is clear.....leading me to believe it is not an acne outbreak. Our doctor diagnose disease her as having hives. Steroids are not helping, nor is Benadryl. She is extremely fatigued. Thoughts? YYYY@YYYY
