I am gone to book to see a specialist tommorrow!I just would like to know what it is? Thank you

That looks like scabies to me

She can try over the counter Nix cream applied from neck to feet and left on for eight hours and use Claritin or Zyrtec for the itching

But a better option would be to see a doctor for prescription permethrin cream

Please let me know if you need any more information
