Small child, white itchy bumps on stomach, legs, not pus filled, red dots. Treatment?

My 5 yr old daughter has had white itchy bumps surrounded by red appear on her lower stomach and legs over the last few days. They typically appear one or two at a time and don t appear to be puss filled. They usually diminish to just barely a small red dot w/i 24 hrs and then disappear. She woke up with two angry looking ones on her knee today. Anything to be concerned about and what could it be?

Pediatrician 's  Response
They can be simple Mosquito bites, just ensure she would wear full-length trousers. One normally doesn't need any treatment for them as they get cured on their own.
