So, did your daughter get this as a result of a cold, a detergent, or was she on a medication? If it was a result of a cold, I agree w/ maxsmom11807, it's just the ending fight of the viral infection & her body. If it was a med, then something else would have to be done (obviously stopping the med, if not done so already). I would ask the MD what to do and not settle for him/her telling you not to worry about it. I second the oatmeal bath + a lotion (e.g. Cetaphil, Johnson's, Lubriderm, or Eucerin are all good). Benadryl (diphenhydramine is the generic name) can also help against the red, itchy symptoms, but first the MD needs to help by telling you what caused this. Good luck!
