Child has rash on arms, spread to back. Concerned

My 9 month old daughter had a rash that began on her arms (crotch of the elbow ). It had a tannish center and was pinkish around it. Then it was a rash that resembled heat rash, diaper rash, or hives . The hives look has spread to her back (on one side) and now is over her whole back. Some is on the line of where her diaper is. But what has me concerned is the spot on her is now a purplish/brownish color.
