Pediatrician 's  Response
Dear Vicky,

Thanks for contacting this forum. It is extremely difficult to conclude from your description. Nevertheless I would suggest that you discuss with your pediatrician and get a work up done. It could be urticaria and should settle down in due course of time. You can proceed with blood and stool examination for a proper work up but do so under the guidance of your doctor.

Wishing your daughter a speedy recovery.
