Skin rashes on arms, legs, hands. Applying cortisone creams. Causes and treatment?

Hello, My daughter who is ten has a rash all over her arms and legs and hands. It is not itchy. I took her to the doctor on Monday and he said for us to put a cortizone cream on it daily. He thought she might be having a reaction to the sunscreen. We have been using the same sunscreen for a couple of years without incident. I gave her another brand, and the rash has not gone away. Thank you.

Hi, Reenee,
Thanks for query.
It seems that thise are allergic rashes.
Take antihistamine like Cetrizine for some time along with local application.
Identify the likely allergen like change of soap,shampoo, body lotion or cream or change of clothes.
Ok and bye.
