See a dr: A papular rash can be caused by many things. Most of them are infective. Since she has had it for 2 weeks, and it is not going away, I would suggest seeing a dr. At the Dr visit, they can examine the pustules and their locations, can determine what the most probable cause is and can suggest a course of treatment. They may/may not do lab work and/or culture the papules.
