Brief Answer:
Use antihistamines orally and hydrocortisone cream.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I see the photo you attached and the skin in your front head is red and swollen.
You can use ice over it. Use hydrocortisone cream over it. I think the cream will not melt so easily.
Take antihistamines such benadryl or citerizine orally.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:
Not much like mosquito bites, can't be said what infection has caused it.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and thank you for asking again.
I don't know what kind of insect it can be because most of the bites are similar to one another.
It doesn't seem much like mosquito bites.
