Thanks for writing in.
The condition can be scabies.It can be acquired from the pug.You and your daughter need to be treated simultaneously for the condition.
A visit to dermatologist will allow proper diagnosis.You can take tab.cetirizine once a day for itching.
Also you can apply good quality moisturizer twice/thrice a day for itching.
Hope this helps.
I will be available for any further clarification you need.
