Hello. Did she have a fever prior to this problem? A common illness that can effect young adults, adults and children (usually starts in daycare or with children) is hand, foot and mouth disease caused by Coxsackie type B virus. I will attach a webpage on that illness, there are pictures of the skin lesions you can view. See if they compare and get back to me to discuss if I can help.
