Child has recurring bumps during cold. Allergic reaction?

For years my daughter would break out with these oval circular shape bumps. They would remain for a while and go away and come back the next year or a couple of years later. The pediatrician felt it would occur whenever she had a cold or sniffles. like a virus in the skin as a reaction to the cold? What do you think? She has a history of ezema.

Dermatologist 's  Response
This looks like urticaria which is an allergic reaction of skin.
It can be appear with infections , any particular food intake, insect bites etc.
The hives are self limiting and disapear after some time.
If she has itching during that time you can give her antihistaminics which will
give her relief.
For her eczema apply plenty of moisturiser 2-3 times a day

Thanks and regards
