Hi there XXXXXXX,
Where do you go swimming? I take it it is a 'pool' as note your location states Bangalore. Is the pool chlorinated? Is it 'ozone' treated? It is quite possible that your skin reacted to the same. One would ideally like to see your level of XXXXXXX before prescribing any creams/lotions. Ideally too, one would require to use some sort of 'protective' cream/lotion that is water-resitant before going into the pool to prevent this in the future. Is it possible for you to click a good clear snap & upload the same?
Cheers & await your responses.

Bioderma has a good lotion called "white objective" that may do the job for you.
Trust it helps. Do use a protective cream before entering the water as chlorine may be darkening your skin..cheers!
