Itchy red bumps

My 20 month old has been getting itchy red bumps that look like bug bites.  Mostly we are finding them on his legs with one on each wrist.  New ones come up all the time but only in these two places.  The bumps ooze a clear liquid.  They come and then start to go away and then all of a sudden he has two more.  I have cats but they are outside cats.  We have checked for fleas - none. No one else in the house has any type of bump.  Can you help?

Hi

The bumps on your child's skin appear red, solitary and they ooze a clear liquid. Is this correct? Insect bites may appear separately while dermatitic skin conditions may appear as a rash that seem to appear as patches with some blistering involved. It may not necessarily be insect bites. Dust and the linen/material your child is sleeping on may also be contributory. A topical antimicrobial or corticosteroid cream may help. Although, I would suggest that you discuss the right medication with your child's pediatrician. Corticosteroids when used in children require close supervision.
