Hi anne,
Thanks for writing in.

It can be blister beetle dermatitis, papular urticaria,insect bite reaction.
You can apply Calamine lotion over the affected area.It is cooling and soothing lotion.It will relieve itching.Also you can take tablet Zyrtec for itching.

Also I encourage you to visit a dermatologist or physician for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Hope this helps.
