  • They sound like bug bites, mine use to get them from playing outside. Or to be honest they could be spider bites. But check with the dr, they may pop them or just have you leave them go away by themselves. If they're bothering her to where she can't sleep, a little benedryl, either oral liquid or the spray/gel on the outside should help.

    My dd use to get chewed up with mosquitoes every year, we went through a lot of benedryl!

  • Does she have a bad rash on her rectum?

    Just wondered, my dd had perianal strep on her bottom and one of the symptoms was pimple looking things around her bottom area...
