Allergic Skin Rash In Children
Usually not: "hay fever" refers to the sneezing, itching and nasal congestion of allergic reactions to pollens, most commonly to the weed pollens and molds that are common during the time of year that hay is being harvested.

Yes if it's eczema: Use creams & ointments on eczema. Lotions & gels contain more alcohol. They soothe & cool the skin by evaporation but evaporation causes dryness. That's the last thing you want in eczema. Creams & ointments trap moisture in the skin - better for eczema. This is less important for contact dermatitis and not at all for hives. Aqueous means ingredients are dissolved in water. ...Read more

See allergist: It appears that you may be having atopic dermatitis as well although most people usually develop skin problem first before rhinitis and even asthma (called the atopic march). However the rash from AD is not usually relieved with antihistamine and thus I wonder if you meant hives (swelling) instead of a rash.

Is allergy an inborn condition? I never had an unpleasant skin allergy (very itchy skin rashes) before until I turned 21.
Yes and no: While you may be born with a propensity toward developing allergies genetically, you actually have to be exposed to an allergen before you become allergic to it. It could happen the first time you are exposed or the hundredth. I, like you, did not start having hayfever symptoms until I was in my 20's. Yet every fall when ragweed is out, symptoms start unless I take my meds during that time of year ...Read more
