Welcome and thanks for your question
I would be pleased to help you with your Question
I did see the photos . The rash looks like an irritant contact dermatitis . She will need to put some over the counter steroid creams on that area .
It should be applied once in the morning and once at night .
The bruising is due to a blunt trauma on the dermal area . You will need to ask her if she has bruising on the other areas to rule out other causes of bruising apart from the trauma .

Thanks and Take care

I would suggest application of ice over the area.
She should also get a blood investigation done which includes complete blood count , bleeding time clotting time test.
