Goosebumps after swimming, sleeping and at random periods. Why?

My 9 month old baby has goosebumps everywhere and she is not cold.
She was at the pool today swiming and in the sun. Also it is quite hot here......
We have been doing the same thing for 3 months now but this is the first time she has ha these bumps.
She was just sleeping on a bed with feathered pillows....could it be an allergic reaction? Dry skin? Teething?

Dear user,

This is likely to be a reflex reaction of the skin to an allergic factor. By goose-bumps, I think you are referring to hives. If these are not hives, and are actually goose bumps, then it may be normal, a sort of body's reaction to the cold water or a blowing wind. It will pass. But if it is hives, she will need an anti-allergic medicine as well as applications of calamine lotion over the rash.
