Question: chest rash
|ceebones - Sun Dec 04, 2005 8:24 pm||
My 8 year old daughter suddenly developed a fine, pink, not really itchy rash around her chest today. The last time she was ill was 2 - 3 weeks ago with a fever (104) for 3 - 4 days with no other symptoms. She has asthma, but has no food, environmental, or drug allergies. The rash is contained in a 4" wide band all the way around her chest. Any ideas?

Well, it could be an allergy, since asthmatics are very prone to develop other forms of allergy. Have you tried a locally-applied anti-allergic cream?
Please, do not give any oral anti-allergy drugs as this may pecipitate an attack of asthma.
