Hello,
Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be discoid pityriasis rosea,eczema or ringworm.

Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and sometimes by itching.

No treatment is usually required. In most patients, the condition lasts only a matter of weeks or months(upto six months)

If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.Other possibilities have to be ruled out then.
I hope that helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how your daughter is doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.

Looks like ringworm to me. My kids have had it a few times. We just used anti-fungal cream on it and it went away rather quickly.

For eczema we use a cortizone cream with steroid, which will make a ringworm grow rapidly, just FYI.

Good luck
