Hello,
I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be folliculitis, photodermatitis, insect bites( if the rash is itchy) or pityriasis rosea. Apply warm compresses, Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it. She can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the lumps persist then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
