Thanks for writing in.
I have seen the picture and I think it could be an insect bite or an allergy. At this stage, I am assuming that your child is generally active and doing well. If not, we could be looking at an infection as well.
If your child is generally doing well, then we should not be worried and we can leave it as such. Applying warm compresses can help drain the fluid and speed up recovery. Make sure that the cloth you use is not very warm. Children have extremely sensitive skin.
If she is not doing well, please take her to her paediatrician. She may need oral antibiotics and a workup for an infection.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
