Dd was sent home today because her face is very red and puffy. She has had an allergic reaction to some paints that she put on her arms. Dr said she is fine (apart from said rash)

She has puriton and cream. Can I send her back tomorrow?

She is fine in herself and has been bouncing off of the walls today!

Yes send her back in.

I would. Unlike a food allergy it is not going to have a potential second wind later, and the red will probably fade very quickly

Fab, thank you. My boss made me feel really awful for sending her today sad She isnt actually ill though!
