Note the reddening of her skin, imparting the appearance of having sustained a sunburn. See PHIL 22322, for an anterior view of her entire body, revealing the extent of the rash distribution.
Additional Information:
“Allergies are an overreaction of the immune system to substances that generally do not affect other individuals. These substances, or allergens, can cause sneezing, coughing, and itching. Allergic reactions range from merely bothersome to life-threatening. Some allergies are seasonal, like hay fever. Allergies have also been associated with chronic conditions like sinusitis and asthma.”
