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

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have reviewed the attached photograph and 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 or twice daily depending on the intensity of itching for 7-10 days.
This will resolve the bumps.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
