Thanks for writing in.

You can be suffering from papular urticaria it is a reaction to insect bite.

My advise to you would be to use calamine lotion over the affected area.

Using a antimosquito net can be helpful for prevention.

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

Hope this helps.
