my granddaughter has whelps that came up on her overnight she is 9 yrs old. what could this be? she hasn't had anything different and i haven't used any different washing detergent. please help this is worrying me.

It could be bedbugs. They are very prevalent now and the bites can be very irritating. I would check bedding carefully, since it is happening at night and they are so terribly invasive. They are also difficult to get rid of. Below is a link to a site that has the different appearances of bedbugs and how to treat for them:


Good Luck and let me know if I can help further!!
