Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

The spots on her palms are looking like resulted from an allergic reaction to some allergen.

The allergen may be food, dust, or something which might have in contact withy the child.

Is child having spots on soles and any lesions in the mouth?

For itching you can give a prescribed oral antihistamine like Benadryl or hydroxyzine in prescribed dosage.

For externally over skin apply a calamine containing lotion for soothing effect.

Consult your Pediatrician for examination and for specific treatment.

Hope I have answered your query.
