Brief Answer:
Seems to be irritant reaction

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I have reviewed both the attached photographs.
According to me the mole looks normal and your daughter has developed an irritant reaction to something she has used or applied on her back or due to some insect bite.
In such cases I recommend my patients to apply cortisone cream on the affected area twice daily along with antihistaminic like tablet Chlorpheniramine 4 mg once daily at bedtime.
This usually resolves the reaction in 7-8 days.
