Suggest remedy for itchy rashes on cheek

My daughter (8 years old) had a small rash show up on her cheek yesterday. It s about the size of a quarter it wasn t itchy yesterday but she says it s really itchy today. It appears to be tiny raised bumps spread randomly throughout the diameter of the area. Any suggestions on what it may be? I gave her some Benadryl today to see if it ll help.

Hi.
As per your case history rash on face that appeared suddenly maybe either a fungal rash or insect-bite.
My treatment advice-
1. Avoid sun-exposure. Don't apply soap or any antiseptics like dettol on rash.
2. Instead of benadryl give anti-histamine like tab. levocetrizine 5mg.
3. As lesion is on face we can try mild cream like clotrimazole cream. Avoid topical steroid cream

If rash doesnot fade in 7 days, consult a dermatologist.

Thanks.
