  • Has she been exposed to either poison ivy or poison oak??? Could be that, if she touched them and then touched her head? And it spreads!

  • could be hives, could be boils. Do they blanche (turn white) when you press on them. If they do, they are hives and for that just giver her benadryl.

  • My 3 yr old gets something similar from mosquito bites. Doctor said it is because she's allergic to them...Try some benedryl in case it is some sort of allergy.. if it doesn't go down, i would consult a doctor.
