2 yr old with hives

My 2 yr old woke up yesterday with hives on neck, back, chest and stomach and red puffy face.  She has a severe peanut allergy, but we don't have peanut in house. We were out the day before, but she was fine. She has a runny nose, no fever.  Negative strep test at pediatrician who was unsure of cause. Viral or allergic reaction? The hives went away mostly last night but came back this afternoon. Using Benadryl. What could this be?

Hi, if she has not consumed peanuts, the rash is unlikely to be an allergic manifestation to peanut allergies. If she has itching then it could be due to other allergens. But viral fevers per say are known to cause rash. If she continues to have these episodes, I would advise you to consult your doctor as sometimes allergic reactions can induce anaphylaxis, which can be life threatening. Best Regards.
