It is difficult to give advice on a dermatological condition if you are not able to examine the patient. In the light of your explanation, it is possible that she has a viral manifestation. If she does have chickenpox, it will start with a rash that spreads all over the body and is very itchy. The rash is usually small, red elevated spots. Blisters will form after a period of seven to ten days.
She should consult a doctor to confirm chickenpox.
