I originally thought chickenpox - however we don't think she has been in contact with anyone with them? There were only a few spots which never blistered and were not fluid filled!! They also were only up the back of one leg which made me think something could have got up her trouser leg whilst playing in the field at school?
They looked more like bites with a red ring around them (detail not clear in photo) and were only itchy when I looked at them otherwise she was completely oblivious to them.

Heat lumps? Are they really itchy? I used to get these as a child, they drove me mad.

She only really noticed they were there and started scratching saying they were itchy, when I removed her trousers to check them. Any time she had trousers on she forgot about them. When I google chickenpox images, I can't say they really look typical to any of the photos.

They look the same as the insect bites I had. I showed mine to a pharmacist and they said to me they were sure they were insect bites. Mine were very itchy.

Look like bites to me too.
Try some anti histamine cream - anthisan etc
