Child having periodic red, burning, hot spreading rash with tiny bumps, no change in routine products. Is it worrisome?

my daughter has been under the care of drs at children s hospital for symptoms unknown. they said maybe bechets but never diagnosed her. she gets a rash from time to time but this one is different. it is really red, burns, hot to the touch and has small tiny raised bumps throughtout. they look like enlarged pores or something. she said it is itching so i gave her benydrl and applied triple antibotic oitment on it. it seems to helf with the itching and burning but rash spreading. because she has has odd symptoms for over a year we do not change our detergent, soaps, lotions, shampoos, etc.. we have continued to use what we always have. since tomorrow is a holiday, should i take her to ER should it continue to bother her? Does it sound like an allergic reaction to you or anything strike out at you?
