Does this look like an allergy rash?

It looks like an allergy rash and nothing to worry about yes?

It's just on her back/ neck. No temperature or other issues. started last night. I've been treating it with diprobase cream and piriton for the itch.

I also cancelled her swimming lesson today as I didn't think chlorine would be the best idea.

The only think I can think could have caused it would be the jelly we bought (hartleys glitter jelly) as all other food she's had loads of times with no problems. We haven't changed washing powder but she did briefly try in a t shirt I bought from the charity shop to see if it fit. I suppose she could have been allergic to whatever that was washed in but she only had it on for less than a minute so not sure If that would have been long enough to case a rash.

Could be. But I find allergy rashes difficult to distinguish from others ... Have you tried the allergy section? My ds used to react very quickly to certain things by touch - so could be detergent but I would be surprised at such a strong reaction after such a short time if you'd never seen it before
