Brief Answer:
Irritant reaction to something used or insect bite

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us at Healthcaremagic
I have reviewed the attached photograph and it seems to be an irritant reaction to either something you have used or to an insect bite.
I would recommend you to apply topical steroid and antibiotic combination cream like cortisone cream and neosporin ointment on the affected areas twice daily and take antihistaminic like tablet Cetrizine 10 mg once daily at bedtime for 6-7 days.
This will resolve it.
