My 3 year old started with a rash yesterday. It started on her neck where her necklace was. So i didn't think anything of it and she went to bed. Now this morning it has spread to her neck, chest and back. Any ideas on what this could be from?

Is it itchy?  Is she on any medications?  Could it be from something she ate?

She was itching her back this morning. She has been on meds but she has had them before and never reacted this way. I took all the kids to play in the water at a park so I am thinking she may have reacted to the chlorine? I dont know.

My mom is allergic to chlorine and breaks out if she is in it a lot, so that is possible. Also with medicines it can take a few times of having them to actually show an allergic reaction to them.

This.  Call the doc to be sure.  I acquired a sulfa allergy around 9 or 10 and had had it before.  It was a torso/upper leg rash and it was the sulfa.

Sounds like an allergic rash to me (Excema).  I would put cream on it for the time being.  It could be the meds or even something else.  Just take note teh best you can what she ate the day of and day before the rash started.  If it happens again, then take note again, what was eaten and look for any similarities....of course, with a toddler its hard becuase they eat the same things each day.

She could be allergic to whatever kind of metal the necklace was made of. Nickel maybe?
