Hi,

If it appeared overnight and there is no fever, this is likely an insect bite reaction. Just apply Calamine lotion over there if there is any itching or discomfort. It will clear in few days, no worries.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
