In brief: Possible causes
You are right in thinking that drool can irritate the skin.
It is common for babies to have irritant rashes on the chin, neck, and chest as a result. Vaseline normally works well if used frequently. For an area which stays damp, a yeast rash is also possible. I would suggest checking with her pediatrician and get their input or have her seen if it persists.

There may be yeast.
Use micatin (miconazole) cream and cover with triple paste to protect area.
