Brief Answer:
Allergic or insect bite

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Thanks for the image.

It appears to be due to allergy or an allergic reaction to an insect bite.

Need not worry, you can give her twice daily antihistamines like Tab Cetirizine 5mg for two days. This will fasten the recovery.

Hope, I answered your query. Wish you good health.
