Hello and welcome,

Thanks for your query.

At first, I would advise you to try to keep your daughter from scratching these spots, as we do not know what they are yet. The fluid inside these spots or even the contamination caused by touching them could lead to spreading and further worsening of her condition.

Also, has she developed any other symptoms? A cough? Fever? Do these spots itch?

Although there is a chance of chicken pox in children her age, it does greatly depend on the area, weather, and time of the year. Also, she should have come in contact with an infected person (adult or child).

It is best to take your child to a Physician or Dermatologist so they can accurately examine and diagnose her.

In the meantime, keep her distracted and avoid contact with the spots / rash.

I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.

Best wishes.
