Thank for asking to HCM
It may be allergic reaction and the auto immune disorder can not be ruled out, to over come this steroid is the only way (prednisone) this will give immediate relief but for diagnosis purpose you will have to got for dermatological opinion, because every skin lesion demands the clinical examination without this it is not possible to say any thing on concrete base, have nice day.
