Thursday morning my 2 year old woke up w/ a pretty large, hard red welt on the back of her knee. When she woke up from her nap she had one on the upper part of her arm. By bedtime she had another one on the side of the same knee. They did not seem to bother her but had scratch marks on them later on. I took her to the dr. where he glanced over at her and said it was a bite...that was it! Sunday she had another one on her other leg and this morning woke up with another one on her other leg and one on the back of her shoulder. Yesterday I noticed what looked like a possible mosquito bite but when she woke up it looked the same as the rest of the bumps. I have researched bed bugs and can't find any proof that's what they are. I can't find anything online that looks like what she has. Does anyone have any idea what the welts could be?? please help!
