Brief Answer:
This is an allergy reaction!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I have reviewed this information fully. It is suggestive of a possible allergic reaction. I bet this is itchy as well. I will recommend benadryl for now. This will control the symptoms. However, it is important to identify what caused this in the environment and stay away from it as much as possible. I wish you well.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
