It is difficult for me to be sure about a rash without being able to see your little girl.Her rash may be due to mite bites which are usually caused by bird mites. Apply calamine lotion to the bites and give your daughter a good multi-vitamin syrup containing Vitamin B every day.Let me know if her rash dos not clear up.
