Brief Answer:
Papular urticaria

Detailed Answer:
thank you
seems like papular urticaria which is a hypersensitivity to insect/ mosquito bites. I suggest you to use a moderately potent topical steroid e.g fluticasone propionate 0.05% (Flutivate cream), twice daily. In addition I suggest you to take an oral antihistamine e.g cetrizine 10mg tablet once a day for symptomatic relief from itching.
