Hi christa,
Thanks for writing in.

The condition she is suffering from can be insect bite reaction,papular urticaria etc.

You can apply a cool soothing lotion like aloe vera lotion over the area.A mild steroid cream like hydrocortisone will be helpful also.
Consider visiting your GP or dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
You can give syrup benadryl for itching till you visit a doctor.

Hope this helps.

you can use cetrizine syrup 2.5 ml and for local application use lactocalamine lotion.
