it looks like she may be getting one on her lower back

Thank you for the input.
These are likely to be swollen follicles.
This red color can be from an inflammation.
An infection is also possible.
But it is not always MRSA.
It is not common.
Please do not worry.

If it increases in size with pus, please get her an examination by doctor.
You can apply warm, moist compress there.
Neosporin antibacterial cream can be applied too.

Those would help in mild cases like her.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Could there be that many swollen follicles? And why would they be spreading on her back?

There can be many swollen follicles.

It is possible to involve back.
