Dear Friend
Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I have read your query in detail. I understand your concer.
Measles usually occurs with Fever, runnig nose, itchy and red eys, cough and coryza associated with rash.
If only rash is there that is itchy it might be allergic reaction.
But if she has fever and other symptoms it might be a Measles.
I would advise you to send us photograph of the rash for a better help.

This is my best advise for you based on available details. If you have any further query, please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
