Sudden onset of itchy rash

My daughter is 8 yrs old. she developed a sudden itchy rash over a day. It starts on hand, side of upper leg, now it is all over her leg, especially below knees with swollen ankle. The rash is 1-2mm red rash, smooth on top, with pale halo around it, also some areas are fused into red patches. She did not have fever or any symptoms except itchy. Do you have any suggestions?  Thank you so much for your help.

my 7 year old daughter also has what you are describing.  Did you ever find anything out?  It is a very odd rash and very itchy.  She did have strep throat approximately 3 weeks ago.
