My daughters neck is bright red. UPDATE WITH PICTURE****

Shes 16 months her neck suddenly became bright red in the front area.... and she keeps rubbing on it like it's irritating her.

I gave her like 2 bites of icecream i was eating, but i gave her the same icecream about 3 days ago and it didnt do anything....

its not puffy or anything, what could it be?

iTS BEEN LIKE THIS FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES NOW.... now shes starting to get sweaty...

  • No worries. If it spreads or gets blotchey or she can't catch her breath, then take her to the doc.

    Sometimes my kids get weird redness too. Usually on their ears, or their face. It will be bright red for a couple of hours and then go away.

    I would not discount an allergy yet though. I would try to give her the ice cream again, but only after all of her symptoms have disappeared and then watch her like a hawk and make sure she doesn't have a reaction.

  • If you are worried, go to the er. Or try to give her some Benadryl.
    She could be sweaty because you are acting funny.

    What kind of ice cream was it?

  • If it's itchy, she is reacting to something...could be the heat, could be a bug bite, could be the ice cream. Use a cool washcloth on it. And give her water to drink.

  • Itching is not a common reaction to dairy. Look for bug bites. If it's stinging ammonia will reduce the stinging.
