Small red bumps on back, legs, arms, buttocks. Using hydrocortisone creams, oozing clear liquid. Causes?

i have two son 5 and 6. my 6 year old came to me and said he thought he had a mosquito bite on is back. to me it looked like one. but the next day i noticed when getting him dressed he had these red bumps on his back, legs, arms, under arms and butt. So i checked my 5 year old, he had bumps too not as many but in the same places as his brother. I put hydrocortisone cream on the bites because they said it hurt when you touched them. When i applied the cream on the bites it started to ooze a clear liquid.

Thank you for your query,
They seems like an skin infection or contact dermatitis.
Physical examination is required to accurately diagnose the problem.
You can apply one antibacterial cream on raw and oozing areas to prevent secondary infection.
Consult your Pediatrician for the examination and for the appropriate topical medication.
Hope I have answered your query.
