Hi

You seem to have developed an insect biters reaction .
It can lead to an allergic reaction leading to itching and sometimes even infection .
Take some oral antihistamines like Benadryl or levocetrizine along to relieve the associated itching and allergy .
Apply a topical steroid cream like cortisone cream over the affected areas twice daily .
