Hi kjones

Thanks for your question and welcome!

Your daughter may have hives - they can be on any part of the body (the face, torso and pelvic region are commonly affected areas). They happen for no reasons, are itchy and can literally disappear for a day and reappear en masse the next day. The attacks last about 2-4 days.

Your daughter may also have an allergy to something; either worn, touched or ingested. Does she have any known allergies? Is she on any medication right now? Has she tried to eat something new or have any new experiences entered her life?

Additionally, check her sheets, mattress, PJs and clothes for bed bugs.

I think it's also a good idea to put a call into her doctor, just to make sure, as we can only offer suggestions as to what may be happening.

I hope this helps and please let us know an update when you can. Our best to your baby!
