Slapped cheek rash?

Can anybody have a look at this picture and reassure me that I'm right in thinking it's slapped cheek?

I'm going to pop her in to see the pharmacist later anyway but thought somebody here may recognise it.

It does look like slapped cheek.
However, it could also be an allergy rash. When dd1 came out like that, the (very experienced) GP said it could be but more likely was an allergy. Then dd2 came out in it too, and he concluded it was slapped cheek.
He said piriton helps with either, if I remember rightly-but do keep away from anyone pregnant.

Thanks. I thought allergic reaction first too but piriton didn't seem to do much.

Never mind, pharmacy said there's nothing much to be done anyway if it is slapped cheek and she doesn't seem unwell so will just keep an eye.

Thanks for replying
