Hi Sheetal,
Thanks for writing in.
It can be purpuric spots or erythema nodosum.

You can apply calamine lotion over the area.Also analgesic like paracetamol would be helpful.

Take a lot of lemon juice daily.Also you can take vitamin C tablets daily.

I encourage you to visit a qualified dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Hope this helps.
