Thanks for posting your query.

From your description, it seems that she may have a rash due to scabies. However, its difficult to confirm it without seeing the rash.

If you can post a picture, I will be able to see it and confirm the diagnosis.

Scabies is an infestation of the skin. It needs to be treated with the application of permethrin cream just once.

Take care
