Dermatologist 's  Response

your daughter may be having atopic dermatitis. You should consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. I would suggest to avoid the contacts and dietary stuff which are responsible for the allergy. You may give steroid cream to apply and antihistaminic like Cetirizine to improve itching.

Hope this helps.
