    I'm not sure where you live but I would just go to emergency outpatients. (Not as an emergency) but much easier than trying to get into a gp at this time of day and having to pay for one. It looks fairly unpleasant and the spreading isn't great.

    Yep I agree with beesam, this is a good idea.

    I'm very cautious with rashes, though I do think it is a contact welt, I would still go to emergency.
    You can get Zyrtec for children.

    yep. Thats exactly what it looks like to me. When ds used to have allergic reactions he would get raised lumps that sort of looked like hairy caterpillar bites. They would "move" all over his body. Have you got any phernergan or any child antihistamine? I would give a dose of that asap but still head off to the gp or hospital as rashes are always a bit worrisome. Ds's hives would normally clear up within half an hour of taking phernergan.

    This is what used to happen when Ds had dairy. he would break out in hives like this that would "move" all over his body. they cleared up with phernergan pretty quick though.
