Small red bumps, like flea bites on legs, discharging watery liquid. Due to allergy?

my daughter has small red bumps which I thought might be flea bites. She has several on her legs in different spots. We have a cat with no signs of fleas and no one else is the house has these bites. What is different is that they seem to very easily ooze a watery like liquid. She has had lots of allergy type things in the past YYYY@YYYY

Insect bites such as mosquito bites would be likely if you live in the area where mosquito bites are common and as children's skin is delicate, they appear as red small bumps.
An antihistamine syrup and a moisturiser cream should suffice, but if picked or scratched will release the watery liquid (flitrate from capillaries).
I am not sure what allergies she has (as you have not mentioned) but the above treatment should be enough.
If there is fever and rash, blood tests would be required that would depend on the geographical location to exclude the current viral outbreaks.
