Hi, by what you quote it seems that your child has probably got allergic reaction or insect bite. Allergic reaction could be due to anything like dust, hay while insect bite will have red centre with a dot that resembles sting. I think you should give hydroxizine syrup PO 5 ml three times a day for 3 days. Take care.
