Hello!That looks more that she may have a case of folliculitis.Have her try applying Neosporin 2 to 3 times a day for 10 to 14 daysIf not improving then have her follow up with her doctor. she may benefit from an oral antibiotic if that first measure does not clear it up. I hope that this is helpful for you.Let me know if you have further questions or concerns.I will be happy to get back with you.If my answers have been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback.Thank you and Best Regards,Anthony Bray MD
