Important considerations would be 1. does it go away over the course of the day? 2. does it worsen over the course of the day? 3. is she she dehydrated? 4. is she urinating as much as she usually does? If not better in 2 days, go see doctor ...Read more

The simplest treatment would be to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (25-50mg) and apply 1% Hydrocortisone ointment 4 times per day. Do not apply anything else to the face (make-up, wrinkle creams, etc) until the rash resolves. ...Read more
