Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi,

It may be lichen urticatus. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. I would recommend you to keep yourself away from insect. The condition is due to hypersensitivity to insects. Take a course of steroid in tapering dose after consulting the doctor. Apply mild steroid cream.

Hope this helps.
