allergic reaction to sunscreen

My daughter is 3 yrs old. Last Saturday, it was sunny so we went to a park. I put Cetaphil Moisturizer containing SPF15 sunscreen on her face, arms and neck area. On Sunday afternoon, she had an itcy rash (red blotches) on her arms and around her neck (not on her face). Its still there and does not look any better.

Just came back from the doctor who said it was likely that the sunscreen was the culprit and it would take 2-3 more days for the rash to go away. He said I may have applied more of the lotion to her arms than her face or maybe her face was more resistant to the irritants in the lotion. Thinking back, I think he is right, I applied more on her arms, she got restless when I started to apply on her face so I let her go midway.....

Her arms itch a lot and she is very uncomfortable. Is there a homeopathic remedy which could reduce the itchiness & red rashes. Itchiness is the main concern here.

About her:

-She is a picky eater, prefers sweets, salad, fruit over rice and cooked veggies.
-Good health otherwise.
-Stubborn, good energy level.
-Good sleep (10pm to 9am).
-Known allergies : Dustmites.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The problem is almost certainly rooted in the vaccinations she has had.

But from the details you give I would suggest a few doses of Pulsatilla 30c

Thanks for your reply. I will give her the doses of Puls-30. Is it one dose everyday for next few days or couple doses in a single day ?

Please can you elaborate on the reason why this problem maybe rooted in the vaccinations that she had earlier (last vaccination she had was in Jan 2006). This is a new concept for me.
