welcome to hcm.
friend it might be due to insects bite.
a condition called papular urticaria where allergic reaction occur after biting.
but it doesn't happen to everyone.
later on it takes bad shape and colour.
but look treatment depends on present condition of your skin.
some general measures you should take always
1.avoid ares with mosquitoes.
2.wear full sleve in legs.
3.use repellents.
if they are very itchy you can take cetrizine at night.
a good dermatologist can guide you properly.
i also practice dermatology but it need examination of your lesion to treat properly.
so follow the measures i've told and consult a dermatologist.
best of luck.
