Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

Does your daughter have a family history of allergy; do you or your husband have asthma, eczema, allergic rhinitis etc?

Most likely this could be a type of eczema due to allergy to eggs. Try discontinuing egg in the diet and see if she gets better.

If red rash persists, consult a paediatrician who might prescribe topical corticosteroids for local application on the red rashes.

Hope this helps.
