It sounds that she may have a case of ECZEMA as the case of her rash...

This is a combination of DRY and hypersensitive skin.. giving an allergy like response...

She may respond to a combination of a moisturizing lotion ( one with aloe is soothing) and a low potency steroid cream such as 1 percent hydrocortisone applied to the rash ( both twice a day )

Sarna lotion for sensitive skin is a good product for this condition..

You are welcome to include pictures which may be helpful to solidify the possible diagnosis ..

If she does not respond within a week to 2 weeks of treatment OR it is getting worse then she should consult a dermatologist.

She also would benefit i think to try an oral antihistamine such as OTC Allegra or Zyrtec ( certrizine) or benedryl ( more drowsiness and needs to be more often with the Benedryl)

She should avoid scratching ( rubbing a wet washcloth dipped in ice water is helpful for itching as an alternative to scratching and the cold reduces inflammation... )

I hope that this information 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,
