welcome to healthcare magic forum
it may be papular urticaria or scabies or other skin infection
do not scratch or squeeze the lesion as chance of infection and spreading is there
first apply antibiotic cream for five days ,once lesion dry out apply mild steroid cream over the lesion
as it has been for 2 month its better to consult dermatologist than taking medicine from the shop
i hope i answered your question
