good morning, its kind of difficult to describe the condition especially associated with the skin over the internet without having a look personally, but still by the way u have described the condition associated with ur child may be just an insect bite if it is single, or if multiple associated with severe itching , it may be acute urticaria. if its cute urticaria , the condition needs immediate medical attention, thank u.
