Initial herpes: If the diagnosis is correct, it's probably her first infection with type 1 herpes simplex virus (HSV1), i.e. not a recurrent oubreak. (Recurrent cold sores are rarely inside the oral cavity.) Presumably she is being treated with acyclovir or valacyclovir. The rash could be an allergic reaction to the drug, but sometimes HSV causes a serious rash called erythema multiforme. Take her back to MD ASAP
