Dermatologist 's  Response

I have gone through your query and it seems to be an allergic reaction.

I would recommend her to apply cortisone cream on the affected areas
along with a frequent and regular application of moisturizing cream on the entire face 3-4 times in a day.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
