Discussions that mention benadryl

Children's Health board

My daughter has a small pimply like rash that has been in the corner of her eye (by her nose) for a little over a week. At first it wasn't bothering her so we didn't do anything, but now it appears to be itching her and it's spread over her top eyelid and under her eye. A while ago it was really red and looked raised. She scratched it and now it doesn't look as red.

I called the doctor and I'm taking her in this afternoon.

She's been irritable and not sleeping well for over a week. Has anyone else's baby had a rash like this? Could it just be allergies? I really hate spending a copay ($25) just to be told "give her Benadryl."
