Thanks for the query,

Your toddler has developed a hypersensitivity to mosquito bite,

It is called as papular urticaria.

Apply a mild steroid lotion like desonide,

Give him an antihistamine syrup.

This will give him some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
