thanks for writing to health care magic.

It seems your child has got sun burn.

It is quite common for children to get sun allergy.

Avoid soaps,apply cold sponging over affected areas.This will give soothing effect.

Start applying a mild steroid like hydro cortisone over affected area.

I hope this will solve your problem.Take care.
