Thank you for your query.

You have not mentioned the duration of the problem or any other associated symptom like fever, cough, etc. If there is no improvement after giving Piriton then your daughter would need to be investigated furhter for the cause. I suggest you follow up with the treating doctor.

If it is heat rash then there should be itching and the child will be comfortable in a cooler environment. If it a reaction to something then the offending item needs to be identified by exclusion.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
