Brief Answer:
Prurigo simplex most probably

Detailed Answer:

I read history and saw the photos posted. After seeing the photos, I could conclude that you may be having skin condition called prurigo simplex.

You may consult the dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.

I would suggest...

- Antihistaminics
- steroid in tappering dose
- short course of antibiotic
- avoid contact with soap and suspected allergens
- apply mild steroid cream with antibiotic

I hope this would benefit you...
