Brief Answer:
Oral anti allergic and soothing lotion

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.
Seems like an allergic reaction. I suggest you to take an oral antihistamine e.g either cetrizine or benadryl for a few days. Topically you may use a soothing lotion e.g calamine lotion.

take care.
Let me know if you need any more assistance
