Allergic reaction: The itchy rash may be related to the insect sting and a prolonged reaction. Other causes may include other triggers, including a food reaction. Use Caladryl lotion three times daily and an antihistamine to control the itchiness. Please follow up with your Pediatrician. Allergy panel testing may be considered.
