Doctor: Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor. Ihave read your query.I understand your concern.As per details, the most lik ely possibility for your symptoms is Insect bite dermatitis. It is characterised by sudden onset of rash noticed spontaneously usually on getting up in the morning.It may be associated with itch or pain.In such cases, I prefer to advise topical antibiotic cream like mupirocin 2 percent over the affected area followed by a combination of antibiotic and steroid like hydrocortisone.Along with oral antihistaminics like levocetirizine is advised for symptomatic relief.Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you prescription accordingly.You can share my opinion with him.I hope it helps.Stay healthy
