My daughter developed sensitive skin on her face since she had repeated problems with strep throat. The doctor treated her with amoxocillin until I insisted we do something different. Her last bout of strep in March of this year she didn't show much signs of sore throat or fever but it showed up in the form of serious facial rash, raised, non-filled, dry and very itchy and hot/inflamed. After positively testing her throat for strep her doctor put her on Clandemycin. She seems to be strep-free for 4 months. However, last week her facial rash returned but not as severe as before. She has the dry, bumpy, itchy skin on her face but with the heat/inflamation. I can't help but think there should be something more to her condition than either just a reaction to strep throat or a form of eczema. What can I do for her?
Itchy bumps are usually allergic in nature and could be the result of medications or even a reaction to sunlight.
Since she has a history of it, it would seem likely to be the cause for the present condition.
There are other viral infections which can cause rash in children but this will not be limited to the face alone.
You can treat it with cold compresses, Calamine lotion and anti-allergic medications like Benadryl.
