What could the cause of bug bite like bumps on the forearm ?

I woke up with 4 bug bite looking bumps on my forearm . Throughout the day they have turned into what looks like red rings on my arm in those spots. One the size of a quarter and the others the size of dimes. There are also a couple other spots popping up in my lower forearm and i can t figure out what they are. They don t seem to be itchy.

i would like to know whether these bumps that you have developed were they related to use of any creams, lotions?

did you take any drug in the last few days?

have you ever had such an eruption before?

is there any oozing from the spots? or any vesicles or pus formation

for now it would be better if you could use some anti fungal cream like clotrimazole cream on that area of eruption twice a day.if you are on any drug then maybe you may have to stop that drug. or if it is because of any cream or lotion u have recently used u maybe allergic to that.

wait for two days after applying the antifungal cream. if it does not resolve then you may need to see a dermatologist.

take care
