Brief Answer:
Insect bite hypersensitivity reaction, cortisone cream and antihistaminic

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have gone through your complaints and reviewed the attached photographs.
It seems to be insect bite hypersensitivity reaction.
I would recommend you to apply cortisone cream on the affected areas twice daily and take antihistaminic like tablet Cetrizine 10 mg once daily at bedtime for 5-7 days.
This should resolve it.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
