? bug bite?: This is likely just a bug bite reaction that should fade within a few days. It can be monitored at home unless it spooks you.

Possible insect bite: One possible cause is an insect bite reaction. Apply ice, local calamine-antihistamine lotion and a low dose of steroid cream two to three times daily. If there is no response, please see your pediatrician. The other cause is an infection and if there is fever, drainage or worsening, please see a physician right away.
