What could be the red, raised hard welts on my toddler's ankle ?

My son is 1.5 yrs old. Saturday he wore shorts since it was beautiful outside. Sunday, I noticed these angry raised lesion welts near his ankle. There are about four. Two of them are normal sized bug bites but the other two are just really nasty looking. Are these mosquito bites?
