Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and have checked the attached images. I understand your concerns. It could be due to dey news of skin but could be associated with an an allergic reaction. Taking some antiallergic like cetirizine or benadryl (or possibly better ones like fexofenadine or loratidine which are prescription medicines) should help. You could also apply some moisturizer like aloe vera lotion.

It might take a few days to recover and so you need to be patient.
