In brief: Probably, eczema

Application of 1% Hydrocortisone oint or cream twice a day would be of help in terms of relieving flakiness and itching.
In case of no response in a few days, consult her primary care physician.

In brief: See your doctor

Rashes that won't resolve warrant a visit to make sure there isn't something more serous going on.
Some systemic conditions can have a facial rash as one of the presenting symptoms.
