I would take her to the vet tomorrow if you can. If the sores are spreading on their own now, it is very likely she has a systemic bacterial skin infection (like impetigo). It can start from a local skin infection (like from the mats), but when it goes into their system, it will start to spread throughout the body if not treated. It will not go away on its own - she will need to take oral antibiotics, which will clear it up.
Don't be super alarmed - it happens - my kids and Lincoln have experienced it before. But she will need the meds.
Keep us posted on how she's doing!
