Any idea what this could be?

My dd stayed the night with my parents the other night. She went swimming and played in the yard a lot. She was wearing shorts and I guess they didn't spray her with bug spray.Last night I noticed a few mosquito bites. No big deal but she woke up with a rash this morning. She has what looks like tiny red pimples all over her legs. Some are in clusters and others aren't. They even have little whiteheads. A week ago my dad said they pulled a tick of her so I have been keeping my eye out for a bullseye rash. She doesn't have one. She has had a slight cough for the past week though which I shrugged off to allergies. We have all had it. My SO says this is a grass rash or chigger bites but it doesn't look like either to me and it didn't show up until today. I took pictures but I can't post them because I can't find my camera adapter. Ugh. I am making a dr's appt tomorrow if the rash doesn't go away. Any ideas?

I would say chiggers or poison oak/ivy.

Sounds like fire ant bites.

That was my first thought but when I have had it in the past it was in lines. This is more like clusters and then single bumps.

Her bumps aren't so big and they don't have so much puss. Some are just red bumps and others look like pimples with whiteheads but really small, kwim?

I agree with the Mom that said fire ant bites.. It never fails when I go to the inlaws they eat me up lol. Mine look just like what you're describing..

I actually think you may be right. It looks very similar to this. What do you do for them?
