Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Please do not panic.I understand your concern.
These maybe hive like lesions and may itch later.
If they are multiple and keep on appearing with slight swelling of the area they might be urticarial rashes.
Keep a close watch on your child.Apply calamine lotion on those areas.
If itching occurs then give a mild antiallergic syrup.
If you could attach a photograph I could answer your question with better accuracy.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
