There are some possible causes based on your post: keratosis pilaris, folliculitis, Vitamin A deficiency are some of the lesions that come to my mind.

I am still unclear as to the nature of the lesion and it would be best if you could supply me with some more information as to the development and progression of these lesions.
Your daughter should avoid itching or scrapping on to these lesions as these may spread.

I look forward to hearing more from you.
