So I just moved in with my friend and her almost 2 year old daughter and yesterday we saw a couple red bumps on her arm we figured mosquito bite but today it has clear stuff coming out and it is very red. She keeps saying owy and point at it. It's really bothering her.
It's been getting worst but she has no fever just tired and cranky but it's only 7:30pm.
Should we take her in?

UPDATE:so the doctor said all it was was a mosquito bite. It doesn't look a thing like a mosquito bite to me lol. I'm glad she's ok though!!

Yes, that looks infected. At least go to cvs or Walgreens and speak to a pharmacist

Well I'd clean them up and cover them just in case the puss is contagious. Give some benadryl and watch for a fever and call the dr in the morning.

I'd at least call the on call PED and describe symptoms.

I would. My daughter had something that looked similar and it ended up being a staph infection. She had to have it lanced and drained.

Do you have a quick care you can take her to?

This exact thing happened to my child as well. It was horrific. The dr sliced open her leg, expelled the pus, then shoved gauze INTO the wound. We had to go back the next day to have that removed. And of course, she was put on antibiotics.
Go to the er of you can.
