Child has red rash, raised bumps. Put hydrocortisone. What should I do?

My 13 month old daughter has a red blotchy rash that has raised welt like bumps on it. The rash started on her tummy and knee and started disappearing after 30 minutes. I put hydrocortisone on the rash and hoped it would be gone by morning but it has popped up in other areas. What should i do? Does she need to be seen by a doctor?

This is looking like some allergic condition like Urticaria. Antihistamines and calamine containing lotions will be useful. Consult your pediatritian for examination of the rash and for appropriate medication
Thank you
