Looks like psoriasis to me (no medical experience here) Has she been stressed lately? Stress causes it to flare up.

Sorry missed the part about that she's been ill. That can cause it too.

Looks like a viral rash to me. Or measles? How is she feeling in herself now?

Does it disappear when you roll a glass over t?

Really don't think it looks like psoriasis.

Doesn't look like psoriasis to me either. Could be scarlet fever? The rash is quite variable. Check her for ' strawberry tongue'. If it is, you need to see the doctor.

Are you in Leeds or Liverpool? There has been a big outbreak of measles in recent days.

The very beginning of measles, or a viral rash

Viral rash or folliculitis.

Thank you everyone. I started a thread in Child Health, too. Was panicking a bit. The doctor thought it was a viral rash.

Hope she's ok!
