My daughter has this spreading rash. It started under her neck. I went to the dr who told me it was dribble rash that was infected and prescribed an ointment to use for 3 days. It was anti fungal, antibiotic and steroid.
It cleared up but on day 4 it was back and worse.
It starts as a pimple looking thing then turns red and inflamed. I've tried all different creams and nothing's working yet. After the pimple goes it turns dry and flaky.
I got another lot of creams today. Low dose steroid and anti fungal.
I see another dr Thursday but in the meantime does anyone know what it could be?

Oh poor possum. Is it irritating her?
It looks like eczema with the joint rashy parts but the pimples make me think it isn't. Could you giver an antihistamine?

Im not sure at all and really just hazarding a guess, maybe some sort of dermatitis or eczema?

I'd get a second opinion and show them the pictures.
Does it get worse when she's hot?
It could have started out as something simple but then let an infection in. Both things may need to be treated if that is the case.
Has she been wet there?

Have a google of perioral dermatitis.
My 12yo has just had this. Steroid creams might make it look better for a couple of days, then it comes back with a vengeance. Any creams make it worse, especially steroids. Treatment is a 4-8 week course of a specific antibiotic. DS's took 4 weeks to clear, he has finished his AB's last week so hopefully it doesn't come back, if it does, looks like he'll need closer to the 8 weeks.

Yes lots of dribble as she's teething. That's why the first dr said dribble rash.
The pharmacist today said it's probably from teething. I'm not convinced since it's spreading!
Doesn't seem to get worse when hot. Stays pretty consistent in the redness.
Unsure about that type of dermatitis as it started under her neck.

This was the start of it when the dr said infected dribble rash. I thought it was ringworm he said nope.
Would a fungal infection spread like this?

DS's perioral dermatitis was around his nose.
I'm not saying that that's what your DD has, but just thought I'd point it out because the treatment is the complete opposite of what you would normally do for a rash.
