They are called erythematous pappules. They can be mimicking a prickle heat or a viral fever.
As long as the same problem persists it can be called as early papular urticaria.
its important for a doctor to see the lesion to be accurate to suggest therapy. But surely this doesnot appear to be serious if work and activity not affected.
Treatment is by soothing may last a month.
