Dermatologist 's  Response
Thanks for the query,

Yes it is possible that she might have developed an allergic reaction.

Usually it is itchy but even stinging can be there.

Apply a mild steroid lotion like desonide,

Also give her an antihistamine tablet like levocetrizine.

This will give her some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
