Brief Answer:
Could be insect bites

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and have checked the attached image. I understand your concerns. It is possibly due to some insect bite (could be mosquito bite) but does not seem to be a cause for concern. It should gradually normalize in 3-7 days. You could also apply some emollient like calamine lotion or some moisturizer like aloe vera lotion. If there seems to be itchiness associated, you can give some antiallergic like cetirizine drops.

It might take a few days to recover and so you need to be patient.
Let me know if I could help further.

Regards
