Rash that comes and goes

Hello
My son is 7 years old. He has seasonal allergies and use to have asthma as a child. recently a rash has been appearing on his face, ears, neck, back, feet and knees. It itches a little. This happened before after a insect bite but only a few times. This past week they have been appearing suddenly while he is indoors. They look like little pimples and when I give him benadryl they vanish an hour later. We just moved from another state and I am in the process to find him a doctor and allergist. Should I be worried?

Hi there!

If it’s just the rash alone, it may not be something to worry; though it is advised to keep him protected from possible allergens such as dust, mites etc. Since a few infections could also present similarly, if the rash does not seem to get better or there are additional symptoms, it is best to consult a pediatrician.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
