You man want to try: putting an over-the-counter antibiotic ointment on these areas 2-3 times a day if they look like inflamed pimples. They're unlikely to be insect bites if they don't itch. If they become bigger, more inflamed, warm or painful to touch or fever develops, be sure to see your child's pediatrician right away, as these are signs of a developing abscess/boil, and may need further treatment.

Folloculitis: It is an infection of the hair follicle . It is a superficial infection . You can take care of it at home by using moist heat, salt water compress and OTC topical antibiotic like neosporin . If it spreads or starts getting bigger and painful then get it chkd by pediatrician .

There are several...: ....things this could be. As a general rule regarding rashes in kids, I advise that if the kid is well and the rash isn't bothering him/her, then leave it alone and see what it does. If the rash is bothering the kid then a doctor should see it. Likewise, if the rash is occurring in the context of an illness, the doctor should see it.

Insect bites: Those are most likely insect bites. Keep them clean and watch for any sign of infection- redness, swelling, pus drainage, etc. If they aren't itching, you don't need to treat them at all. If they do itch, I like Caladryl Clear (over the counter) to stop the itching.
