Brief Answer:
Hives/ Urticaria; Oral antihistamine e.g cetrizine

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

I have reviewed the Images. I can see faintly red, raised lesions.

These seem like urticaria/ hives to me. It could be drug induced, most likely due to the pain killer/ antiinflammatory, which you have been taking since for past 3 days.

I suggest you to take an Over the Counter antihistamine e.g tablet cetrizine 10 mg, twice daily for 3-5 days.

Topically you may use a soothing lotion e.g calamine lotion, as and when required.

Regards
