My DD has been coming up in these "spots" all day in different places except they are coming and going. They came up at home and at childcare. On her face, chest and knees. Do I need to get antihistamines? Or will she be fine on her own? ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1457001242.543470.jpg

Is this hives?
Yep, looks like hives to me. But best to get confirmed by a doctor. My dd randomly comes out in hives and I just give her a dose of Zyrtec and they clear up pretty quickly. The first time she got them she was about 18 months old, I took her to the local hospital (cause I completely freaked out) and the doctor said hives and to give antihistamines. I'll see if I can find a photo to show you.
Eta: The first time she got them they started as a small patch on her tummy and very quickly spread all over her body. Went away within an hour of antihistamines.

Could be hives or mozzies. Wouldn't hurt to give antihistamine but maybe take her to dr as well if its first time
Has she eaten Nythjng different or been in contact with something different (grass, heat, new soap?)

Id' say it's an allergic reaction to a mozzie bite. My DD comes up like that when she's bitten. Antihistamine will help.
