Brief Answer:
Low dose cortisone cream!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I ahem reviewed your information fully. This is certainly an allergy. Unfortunately, the exact cause cannot be identified. However, put an eye on this to see if it happens again.

For now, apply low dose steroid cream. They are available in most drug stores over the counter. Keep me updated in 2-3days with another image.

I hope this helps and guides. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
