Hi,

As per your query, your child has symptoms of whole body rashes which can occur due to our environment, heat, cold, pressure and sun exposure. It is the bodies response to the trigger factor. The most important thing is to find the trigger factor.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you give cold compresses to hives several times a day to prevent from swelling and itching and take over the counter antihistamine drug-like benadryl. If symptoms still persist then consult a dermatologist for proper examination and treatment. The doctor may prescribe other steroid creams (mometasone), anti-inflammatory drug or drugs that can suppress the immune system.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari, Dentist
