DD has had a rash on arm over 1wk.....

My dd (3.5yrs) has had a small rash on her arm for 2wks. on the inside of her elbow. It only itches a lil bit (doesnt seem bothered by it really). she has no fever or anything..
its like 1 patch, we put Calamine Lotion on it & it goes down a bit, but if we forget to put it on 1 day, it returns.. but doesnt seem to grow or anything
Anyone have a clue about what it could be..

  • TO #1 anon..
    This is not her first time having a rash.. She has a HUGE Whelping rashes all over her body a year ago that would come & go-- we rushed her to the ER... Shes had another type of rash a few months after that, we took her to the dr... BOTH TIMES they said it was NO BIGGIE, rashes usually go away on their own, they can help allieve the symptoms but rashes usually have to just take their course.. And they always try to give her a topical cream to help. but its NEEDED --- and the stupid warnings are RIDICULOUS.... I refused to put them on dd both times.

    This rash is different. its small, in 1 contained area... We will probley end up taking her to the Dr... but I wasnt going to rush out live we have did before.. and wanted to see if any other mothers could help with what it could be...
