Child has no appetite, rash on back. No itching. Allergy?

My 16mth old daughter has had little to no appetite for 2 days now and there is a rash-like symptom on her back mainly and front. I am not sure if it is hives or something else or whether or not we should take her into the ER as the earliest app we can get is the 25th. the rash does not itch but it is spreading up into her hair. she has no allergies that we know of but was sensitive to milk or milk products when i was breastfeeding but she has had no problems with whole milk since she was 12ish mths maybe as I lost my supply by 14 months. Also milk is all she has really been consuming the last 2 days. could it be an allergy? should we take her into the ER? could it be something else? everything went away after a bath and some food. could it have been something else? It does make sense as a milk allergy but she seems to have no problems most of the time.

actully child needs mother milk for 2 years

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Allergy is possible / however...Spreading nature and loss of appetite suggest VIRAL infection as a more likely cause
A paediatrician or dermatologist will be an ideal choice / If you couldn't get one, See the doctor in ER...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
