Brief Answer:
Allergic reaction.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

This looks like an allergic reaction. It can appear due to a bite or skin contact to something you are allergic at. It is nothing serious. Itching and redness is quite characteristic for allergic reaction.
Please try to take Loratadine (anti allergic medicine) and apply some Hydrocortisone cream. If this wont help, consult dermatologist.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
