Rashes. Is it a heat rash? Take Benadryl?

My daughter is 3 years old and i noticed this afternoon she had broke out in a rash . I am not sure if it is from her cat sleeping with her last night, heat rash, or something else? She is acting fine. i gave her allergy medicine and benadryl cream and it seemed to clear up a little but still there. She is not acting sick and i asked her if anything hurts or itches really bad and she just said her neck itches a little.She also has about 10-12 mosquito bites on her, so i have no idea what could have caused the rash....?

Hi Jessirae,

Your daughter is suffering from allergy and also mosquito bites. Give her a warm bath and apply a medicated prickly heat powder. Do check her bedding and mattress for bugs. It seems your daughter has sensitive skin. It will be good for her to avoid sleeping with pet animals, they can cause other problems ( asthma) later in life.

Do visit a skin specialist and get your daughter examined. Mosquito bites can cause problems like fever after 48-72 hours. She also needs an oral anti allergic medication. Clean your home and surroundings (garden etc) to stop mosquitoes from breeding. Mosquito bites should not be taken easy, they are source to really serious ailments ( malaria, cerebral malaria, dengue, etc ) many times.
Enjoy good health.
