Too early to tell: One red spot of one day's duration wld be very hard to diagnose esp in the absence of other symptoms. Best weld be to observe her for a few days and if new spots develop or other signs and symptoms develop take her to her pediatrician or a dermatologist.. If u r very worried u can do so now.
