First you have to figure out when she goes. We started ours just experimenting with sitting on the potty just before bath time. I had also let them come in when I used the toilet just to get the idea. No pressure.

What Maggie said. No pressure. I tried to force potty training on my son when he was two. I just ended up washing a lot of pants and underwear. I waited a few more months until he was ready and within two days we had no accidents day or night. You can give her a book to look at in there after she wakes up in the morning and at nap time. That's usually a for sure time they *have* to go. And when it happens.... reward, reward, reward!

Yeah, live and learn. 

DD1 and I....potty training was a miserable experience.  I'm so waiting longer if needed with this one.

I would rather change 100 poopy diapers than one pair of poopy underpants: the poop smears down their legs when you take the underpants off, gets on their feet, on the bathroom floor, then all on the side of the toilet. Then you're left debating if you can wash the clothes or should throw it all away. If you start potty training and have too many accidents, back off for a month. My boys were both 39 months on the dot and "trained" in like 3 days. My girls were around 2.5 years. And I'm talking dry and clean during the day and night. It was more baby-led. I think it also helps when they're not napping anymore. And it certainly helps when they can get their clothes off and back on. GOOD LUCK!!! Seriously I hate poopy underpants. :-(

Dd likes to play with her diaper so that's making it more difficult. I also heard girls are easier to train than boys. I hope so.

Also, forgot to add, why im trying to push potty training is because she has MRSA. She breaks out A LOT down there from the,poo and pee. :-(

Good luck! I do not envy your position right now and I dread it when my son reaches that age! I raised my brother and sister and they were difficult to say the least. I did read a deal in Pinterest about potty training in 3 days but not sure if it works or not. A lot of people in the comments swore by it though.
