1yr 6 months old baby getting small boils. No fever. Can this be mosquito bite?

I have a 1 year 6 month old baby. He is getting small boils on his body, not everywhere few, 2 at a time. The boil goes off in 2-3 days and the next one appears. He has no other symptoms of fever . I doubted if its mosquito bite but usually it does not come out as big as this. Please suggest. I apply Eumosone once i see the boil

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
According to your information it seems most probably to be a reaction to mosquitoe bites which is very common starts as a flat or raised reddish mark then develops into a boil and subsides on its own gradually in 3-4 days leaving behind slight Hyperpigmented mark .
You can apply eumosone on it for relief. But remember there is no cure and it's best prevented rather than treated. As your child grows up the condition may resolve on its own with maturing immune system.
Hope this information is helpful to you.
Wishing you good health.
