Hello
Thanks for the question posted.
From your description it looks like a fixed drug eruption or contact dermatitis.or tinea corporis .
You should apply over the counter applications like Cortaid cream with canestan cream on area twice a day for 10 days.
Please do book an appointment with the Dermatologist.
Thanks and take care .
