Hello everyone! i need some help! My daughter has bumps all over her body, they started about 3 weeks ago. have no changed anything for examples soaps, detergant,etc. She isn't complaining about them though, i took her to the doctor and he said they were hives,or viral infection and if it's not bothering her its not bothering him. but its bothering me! i think it is something else. do hives really last for 3 weeks? anyways, they come and go, she'll wake up with bumps in different spots everyday. somedays are worse than others. today when she woke up they were different. she still had the same ones on her legs etc, but on her arms they were bigger and had a pin hole in the middle of the bump. she said they do not itch but they hurt. I stripped the bedding and cleaned it with dreft, all her clothes in dreft thinking maybe she developed a reaction to that? i am clueless. i even thought well maybe she has bed bugs and or spiders are biting her but even when she goes to my moms and spends the night she still wakes up with them. i checked the mattresses and put up spider traps just in case. no change in her bumps! i guess the next step is to go to dermatologist, gonna give it another week. She looks like a leper.
