Hi Diana,
I think there is no need to worry or panic. Ask you child whether she was bit by some bug or got scratched by something dirty. Clean the area with some antiseptic and apply some emollient /calamine lotion. unfortunately without seeing the lesion prescribing some medications would be wrong. For itching you can give some oral antiallergic syrup. If the lesions increase or worsen consult a dermatologist.Hope she has a speedy recovery, have a nice day,bye
