A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
I have read your query.

I have seen the attached photograph also.
I understand your concern.
As per details, the most likely possibility for your symptoms is a condition of skin called Allergic contact dermatitis.
It is an allergic condition of skin which can be caused by bug bite, termites, new clothing, deodorant, soap, recent infection etc.
In such cases, I prefer to advise a combination of levocetirizine and montelukast to my patients.
Topical cream containing mid-potency steroid like Mometasone also helps.
Try to avoid the offending agent.
Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you prescription.
You can share my opinion with him.

I hope it helps.
Stay healthy
