rash, cystic acne-like mostly on arms

My daughter broke out with pimples across her forehead at age 7.
Endocrin suggested slightly overactive androgen, nothing serious.
Acne continued.
Now age 12 has been dx'd with cystic acne on her arms. I'm questioning the dx because it
has a distinct oval shape, and look like long oval mosquito bites. They itch and they're sore. But they aren't bright red. Some are flesh colored.
She has pimples on her face around the outer ring and cheeks. They are small and lumpy but don't look like typical puberty-type pimples. It's not just a pimple here and there. It's clustered and rash-like on her face. Her arms look different.
Can this be allergy related?
The dermos just want to slap cream on it and give her antibiotics.
Something doesn't seem right here.
Please help!
She has always had skin eruptions since she was an infant (ie: heat rash, viral rash, etc) and swells terribly from mosquitoes. A normal mosquito bite on her is about 10x's the average size.
She has a few small red dots here and there on her back and legs, few and far between.
Any suggestions?
Thanks so much!!!

Hi Rachel
Sounds to me like hives, or urticaria, which is mostly caused by an allergic reaction either on contact eg. nettle rash or due to some allergen in her food, so watch her diet. Dairy is a major culprit in child food allergies so it's worth eliminating and seeing if the rash clears. Also increase cooling foods in her diet like salads, fruit and veg and nothing too hot and spicy. Those of us that have skin problem do not do well on spicy foods.

Diet can make a HUGE difference so give this a go . And minimise creams etc. Certainly no antibiotics - unneccessary.

I would go to the health food store and get some non-dairy acidophilus powder also. This will strengthen her digestive immunity, especially imp. after antibiotic. Elderberry in liquid form is also great for kids as an immune enhancer.

HOMEOPATHY - Apis Mel. 30c is great for allergic skin reactions and v. effective after any insect bits to reduce inflammation.

Let me know how you get on.

Thank you for the replies. My daughter's stomach is fine and she has not had her period yet.
I've often wondered if contact or allergens were the culprit here. Her face and arms are the body parts that would touch the pillow or couch when she lays down. It seems odd that the worst of the break outs is down her arms. And if this was simply acne, why would she have red dots on her legs even by her ankles? I know something is going on from the inside!

I give her acidopholis every day. I will eliminate dairy and try the suggestions.

Any thoughts on allergy testing? Metobolic workups?

Thanks again.

From what you describe it is more likely to be urticaria and dermatitis rather than acne. Acne rarely itches, while urticaria itches like hell. Try the Apis Mel and monitor the diet. I'm all for allergy testing - it may save you time in the long run identifying the allergen. Often the culprit is what we tend to eat day in , day out. Watch the dairy and watch the wheat. These are biggies.
