Allergy reaction?

Dr, my son had their summer splash at school today...When he got home he had red rash behind his ears (almost like little hives) areas (almost like a heat flush?), not rash, also not like hives, just red pathes (like after doing exsercize) under his eyes and above his eyebrows....His neck also had a rash....He didn' t eat something strange (berry sorbe, without any egg). He says that the teachers has thrown plenty of bubblebath and washing powder on the slippy slide, he went on that with his swimming costume...But he has no rash on his back or front....Any ideas, what' s going on? Thanx Ps...he does suffer from food and e/allergens....

This could certainly be an allergic reaction possibly to the bubble bath or to the washing powder. Give him an antihistamine such as Zyrtec syrup 5ml once daily until the rash clears.
