A. If you have noticed other bites, then it could be an insect bite, but it is probably a stye, which often appear as red, swollen bumps on a child's eyelid and look like pimples. Does it look like this picture of a stye?
Surprisingly to many people, a child's eyelid has 100s of small glands near their eyelashes. They help to lubricate the eye, but can become blocked (chalazion) and infected (stye).
The main treatment for a stye is the frequent use of warm compresses 3 to 4 times a day for about 10 minutes at a time. When infected, especially when red and tender, they may also need to be treated with an antibiotic ointment or antibiotic eye drops.
