Brief Answer:
it seems to be allergic.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing your query.
After reading your post, it seems that your symptoms are allergic in nature.
You should try to find out and avoid the causative agent which may be any new cream, moisturiser, fabric of your night dress, mosquito repellant, etc.
I would advise that you should take an antihistamine like Fexofenadine 120 mg once a day for 5 days. Also get deworming done by taking Albendazole 400 mg at night for one night only.
Of the symptoms persists, get yourself clinically examined and investigated by your doctor.
I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
Regards. Thanks.
