How can I prevent my 2 year old to stop picking at her spider bites on her face?

Put her in gloves: If you really want her to stop you can fasten gloves on her hands that she cannot remove.

If neither are acceptable, just accept you cannot control a 2 yo and let her be.

My daughter's skinpeeled from head to toe after what we think was a spider bite...what should we do?

? not a spider bite: After a strep or staph infection with strains that produce exfoliatin toxin (and related toxins) the skin commonly peels all over, not just in the area of infection.
