So these are large red spots? Do they itch when they come up?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK Mark--how often does this happen and does she have any known allergies?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
At the moment frequent
No no none Algiers
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK Mark. This is obviously an allergic dermatitis problem and for now she can take either benadryl, Claritin, or Zyrtec on a daily basis for about two weeks. That should clear this up but if it recurs after that she should see a doctor for allergy testing to see what's causing this
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Excellent can I ask a question about myself
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
