Brief Answer:
Most likely evolving pypderma

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking on this platform

I have seen the images.Sorry to say but images are very blurred.I request you to attach a clear image so that I better able to help you out.

After seeing these images what I have concluded that it can be evolving pyoderma(bacterial infection of skin) or may be rashes of chicken pox.

I have few queries -
If there is any fever,redness of eyes or cough/cold?
Is there any itchiness?
For how many days the rashes are there?
Are the rashes are fluid filled or pus filled?

In case of pyoderma oral and local application of antibiotic would be needed.
In chicken pox conservative treatment like application of calamine lotion,antipyratic will be helpful.

I would like to get her clinically evaluated by a pediatrician if rashes progress for further evaluation and management.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more query.
Wishing for your child's speedy recovery.

Brief Answer:
The possibility of allergic rashes should be ruled out

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for follow up

Cough with itchy rashes,in the absence of fever can also be due to allergy.
I request you to attach a clear image so that I could better differentiate between these.
