You are correct this rash is due to fleabites. It is called papular urticaria and often just one single flea bite leads to this reaction which is a form of allergy to flea bites. Apply calamine lotion to the blisters and to the red spots and give your daughter Thiamine tablets 25mg daily for 3 months.Thiamine is vitamin B1 and with time the fleas will stop biting her.Read more about papular urticaria on Google.
