Hi everyone! So my 3yr old daughter developed an itchy raised rash on her arm around the crease of the elbow about 3 weeks ago. It has since spread to the backs of her thighs, left ankle, and beginning on her torso. The doctor saw her last week before it started to spread and summed it up to possibly detergent or soap causing it, however, we have not changed anything since she was very young. She also has not had any new foods that would be causing this. Has anyone ever seen this before? Thank you in advance!

Since the last time I posted she was seen by her pediatrician who decided her rash was not a contact rash nor eczema and to see a pediatric allergist. The pediatric allergist saw her and did environmental skin allergy testing that only showed a dust allergy. He started her on a new cream and Zyrtec along with hydrocortisone. Her rash has improved as it is not as red, however, she is still covered in small bumps. She is seeing another allergy group in another week for food allergy testing.

I was thinking possibly eczema as well. I have a call into her doctor to try and get an appointment for tomorrow or Monday. I have aquaphor so I will try that tonight .

It is very frustrating trying to figure out what the cause is, but hopefully we will soon!

I am going to call her doctor in the morning, however, I was curious to see if any other moms had seen this before. I am not on here to diagnose her, i'm simply on here to see if any other moms have come across something similar.
