hello,
welcome to HCM,
as per the description you have been given , its really hard for any physiscian to say the correct diagnosis. dermatological conditions should be seen with a eye and examined properly to come to diagnosis ..but any way i will list out the causes :

1. MAY BE A TINEA (FUNGAL) INFECTION
2. MAY BE T.VERSICOLOR
3. INSECT OR MOSQUITO BITE
HOW EVER , MY ADVISE IS TO CONSULT A DERMATOLOGIST AND , GET EXAMINED PROPERLY, HE WILL TAKE CARE IT..
