A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
I understand your concern.

I have seen the attached photograph also.
As per details, the most likely possibility for the symptoms you mentioned is Hypersensitivity reaction. The rash is more on exposed parts of body and looks like mosquito bites at places. At times, mosquito bite elicits hypersensitivity reaction leading to spread of rash on the body.
In such cases, I prefer to advise topical calamine and mild potency topical steroid like hydrocortisone to be applied on the rash.
You may discuss my opinion with your doctor.

I hope it helps.
Stay healthy.
