Looks like masquito bite but its a lot.

my two year old has red spots like masquito bites but in a three inch diameter there is around 7 bites on the leg(not in a triangle all over in the area). there are about 20 total on both leg and arms. we were thinking chicken pox but there is none on the belly or back. he is not itching them but he has a runny nose. i was thinking allergy reaction but i would think it be on the rest of his body. i gave him bendryl he is sleeping but i am concerned what does it sound like to you?

  • Since the benadryl have they disappeared? Do you have chiggers where you are?

  • Have you looked up bed bugs? It sounds gross and creepy but we stayed in a place once with them and they bite close together in what areas are exposed while sleeping. Depending on how many there are you can have a few or be covered. But the one thing that stood out to us was they usually bite in clumps or several in a straight line. And can get pretty big like whelps. Maybe look up some pics. Aside from that, my niece is allergic to mesquittos and everytime she gets bit they get huge! like giant mesquito bites lol.
