Welcome to health care magic! I have seen the uploaded images.
As there is no fever it is not likely to be from viral infection.
It is more likely to be some insect bite allergy.
Do you have mosquitoes in your place?
Does she scratch?
If it is itchy, you can give some anti histamine syrup.
Otherwise just wait and watch.
All the best.
