Hello sir. Your description of the rash suggests it could be id eruption or Henoch-scholein purpura (HSP). Both the conditions have got definitive treatment and it would be advisable to establish the diagnosis after consulting a dermatologist as soon as possible.

The raised patch on her wrist could be dermatitic (eczematic) or fungal infection. The latter is known to precipitate id eruption.

If she has associated joint pain and abdominal pain, then she could be having HSP.

The third possibility that I can think of is papular urticaria but the rash in this condition is invariably itchy.
