Insect bites on skin in little children can be quite bad.
Zinc oxide helps such as the one found in nappy creams.
You can use a mild steroid cream such as 0.1% hydrocortisone cream; and use antihistamine syrup such as chlorphenamine or cetirizine.

You can also apply insect repellant cream on the exposed parts of the skin avoiding the face and neck.
Best Wishes.
