pMy daughter woke up with these little bumps a bit everywhere on her body (look like mosquito bites) with red around. They don't itch. They went away almost right away and now they came back again. Is this a reaction? They only peanut reaction she's had was at 12 months and she is now 2 1/2. Can anyone help me with this. Thanks!/p

I am sorry that I probably don't know the answer to your question; however, your message leads me to a question for you. I can't tell by what you are saying whether your daughter has been "peanut free" since the reaction at 12 months or if she now eats peanuts and had not had any more reactions. The reason I ask is that my son, who will be 1 next week, had a reaction (hive like swelling around his eyes) a few days ago after taking a bite of a peanut butter cookie. He won't get allergy tested until the end of July, and I am wondering if this one reaction (if that is what it in fact was) could possibly be an isolated occurrence or if we are probably facing something more. As for your daughter, did she eat anything peanut before this recent break-out? It is strange that it would go away and then return. Maybe it is a reaction to a laundry detergent or something. I hope so instead of peanuts.

They sound like hives (in that they sound like the way I describe hives!) -- but *please*, don't rely on our expertise here -- give your pediatrician a call. Or call your local nurses' hotline. If it is a reaction, their knowledge will help you far more than our guesswork. I'm not trying to discourage you from seeking support here -- I have learned lots here myself -- but if your daughter is having a reaction, timely treatment could be critically important.

I agree you should call your pediatrician or allergist if you are concerned.
Hives are usually circular raised bumps and they are very itchy. Was your daughter hot? ...could it have been heat rash?
I would give her benadryl anyways, it's not going to hurt her.

If she woke up like this it makes me wonder if there was any chance you washed her bedding and maybe used a laundry detergent she is allergic to. Any chance of a spider being in her bed that may have bit her. I would seek medical attention either way. claire
