Brief Answer:
It looks like an Allergic reaction.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I saw the pic.
It looks like a Allergic reaction to some mite.
Usually, I prescribe Antihistamine tablet along with Topical Ointment containing Corticosteroid and Antibiotic.
Nothing to worry. It will come down.
Another common condition that has to be excluded is Fungal infection.
Hence, I request you to consult a Dermatologist, get examined clinically and proceed accordingly.
Hope I answered your query.
If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
Regards
