Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
I have seen the attached photograph also.
As per details, there are following possibilities for your symptoms:
1 ) Drug rash- of you have been on medications like Antibiotics, painkillers it may cause such rash. Best treatment is to discontinue the offending drug.
2) Papular urticaria: it is characterised by red itchy eruptions on the body mainly on exposed parts as a hypersensitivity reaction to a mosquito bite.
Treatment depends on the diagnosis.
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.
